By creating high-energy, positive spaces that level the playing field, everyone has a voice and power is shared. Only then can people tackle tough challenges and begin to create extraordinary neighborhoods where economic and racial justice thrive. We’re working to spread this way of community involvement.

Neighbor Up COVID-19 Rapid Response Grants: Through funding from the COVID-19 Rapid Response Fund, we received $200,000 to distribute small grants up to $5000 to small non-profits, faith-based organizations, and grassroots groups to support their work in helping people in the community.
We’ve also launched Cleveland Documenters, in partnership with Chicago-based civic journalism lab City Bureau, to recruit, train and pay Greater Clevelanders to document official committee meetings of the Cuyahoga County and City of Cleveland governments and contribute to a communal pool of public knowledge.
