TOGETHER Initiative — "Building Power Through Community"

Following a two-month planning phase launched by the Equity Caucus event, neighborhood and cultural groups work with technical-assistance providers who are part of the Equity Caucus in developing strategies and projects to address inequities in specific quality-of-life areas. Working groups members collaborate on project proposals that are ultimately submitted to FFL for grant consideration.
