Learn more about the Racial Equity Learning Community developing in Bucks and Montgomery Counties!
Vision: To advance racial equity and justice in Bucks & Montgomery Counties, Pa through committed organizational learning, community-building, and action that deepens organizational and collective capacity for change.
Planning Partners: Bucks-Mont Collaborative, HealthSpark Foundation, Interagency Council of Norristown, and Tri-County Community Network, with consulting by the nINA Collective, a consulting cooperative that partners with nonprofits on systems change initiatives to advance racial equity within organizations and communities.
Thank you to our wonderful Advisory Council for their time, leadership and counsel in the planning phase of this work!
Year 1 Timeline: September 2021-June 2022
Year 1 Participation: Up to 25 organizations, represented by a maximum of 150 individuals, committed to organizational learning, action, and community-building during this 10-month period, with a commitment to remain engaged beyond through community action teams. A second cohort is being developed for County participation.
Application: Learning Community applications are open as of June 23 and will close July 30, 2021; participation is being offered at no-cost to organizations due to the generosity of current funders, and continued investment outreach by the planning partners. If we receive more than 25 organization applications, an equity-based decision-making framework will be used to select this first cohort, with other learning and engagement options offered to all applying organizations.
Thank you to these dedicated Racial Equity Learning Community funders!
