It’s Code Red for democracy in America and in many places around the world. It’s Code Red for justice. And Code Red for the environment. It’s way past time for people in the nonprofit, helping, service, and justice sectors to come together and intentionally run for local office as champions of peace, equity, service, and justice. We are not going to charity our way of the crises that confront us. Attend the CivicLab's March 15 online workshop “Grassroots Campaigning 101” (6-8pm CST). The cost is $10 but no one will be turned away. Details at https://tinyurl.com/Camp-101-3-15-22.

Bailey Borman
57:07
How are neighborhoods defined?

@Bailey, a 'place with work to do'
Marieann Shovlin

There is an NGO that started in Chicago in the 1960’s called Institute for Cultural Affairs (ICA) that worked with Black Chicago neighborhoods to enable/encourage them to lift themselves up with their own gifts. ICA has worked with communities world-wide and still is active today.

This is Paulo Freire. Liberation theology. We could learn a lot by taking his thinking into our understanding of how to strengthen democracy
Tom Tresser
01:04:20
Can you post link to the Phase concept...
Lori McNeill
01:04:28
so many people I work with need to hear this!
Sterling Speirn
01:04:45
Maybe call it the “sunshine government?”

As John is sharing, it's an incredible effort for collective change through citizen efforts.
John Kilcoyne (he/him)
01:07:20
Hi, Tom! We will make sure to send a link for more information on the Phase concept in our follow-up email
Wendy Wagner
01:09:56
This concept works well in spaces (like Nebraska - I’m from there too) where people are suspicious of institutions like government.
Mark Roseland
01:10:39
Indeed – local governments belong to their citizens, not vice-versa. My book Toward Sustainable Communities is subtitled; Solutions for Citizens and Their Governments. https://newsociety.com/books/t/toward-sustainable-communities?_ga=2.196402668.11566960.1646854876-650357364.1646854876&sitedomain=us

Whyte and overlaps with collective continuance here?
Will Keenan (Richmond, Virginia)
01:21:56
How should (or shouldn't??) nonprofit organizations fit into this structure to facilitate, rather than hinder, authentic community development?
Allie Christianson, Civic Nebraska, She/Her
01:22:09
^^
Peter R Sawyer
01:22:37
Problem with this model and spreading it depends on creating institutions that can promote and facilitate. It also depends on providing education for all to be able to do this work.
Peter R Sawyer
01:23:51
We are trying to create institutional structure through NY State colleges and we have a new curriculum for K-12 on Civic Readiness.
Marieann Shovlin
01:24:51
To WK: that is a big issue in that non-profits all have an agenda and rather than partnering, some work as competitors for members and programs
Jackson Hignite
01:25:22
would love to see any research into non-face-to-face organizing, specifically within disabled spaces!
Valeriano Ramos
01:26:33
Harold’s point about “otherness” is SO important to emphasize because. as Kip Holley of The Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity has discussed in some of his published work, civic infrastructure sadly includes dominant and sometimes implicit mindsets, practices, and relationships that reproduce racist practices and barriers unless we intentionally disrupt them to ensure that the civic infrastructure and civic life are robust with anti-racism relationship and trust building, embracing and honoring diversity and multiculturalism andinclusiveness, and that we recognize and acknowledge histories of exclusion and oppression as essential to dismantling “otherness” at the root—not just in “word.” V. RAMOS
Russ Haddad
01:27:53
I hope these models will be used more frequently in community economic development. More neighborhood autonomy and use of their cultural and social characteristics can lead to greater economic prosperity.
Henry Williams
01:29:00
What about Councils of Neighborhood Associations to create the network to connect neighborhoods with other organizations in the community?
Maggie Gunther Osborn, MPN
01:29:02
Its less permanent in nature
Peter R Sawyer
01:29:05
We have a common sense of a calling for this work
Fatu She/Her Outreach Director
