Neighborhood Summit 2017



Dinner:  Fri March 10   Summit: Sat March 11   Cintas Center, XU

This is equity: just and fair inclusion into a society in which all can participate, prosper, and reach their full potential (Policy Link)

Widespread neighborhood revitalization and growth is unsustainable without equity of opportunity, access, and inclusion across a broad spectrum, including health, education, housing, jobs and civic participation. This year’s theme, Building Equitable Futures, encourages our community to come together to tackle the challenges and bring forward ideas for building a future for all.
