Assumptions, Practices, & Goals

Underlying Assumptions & Practices: 

  • The disasters of 2020 can inspire us to create better and bolder solutions, not just incremental moves towards better rebuilding. 
  • Our challenges can help us build resilience and create more inclusive and equitable systems of care and development.
  • Recognition that all people across all sectors and communities must work together to lift ourselves and each other up after the disasters. 
  • People in leadership and support roles reflect the full diversity of our community. 
  • Because equity, inclusiveness and diversity improves the quality of ideas and life for everyone, bringing in underrepresented voices makes for a more robust and resilient community. 
  • A full range of housing options will require active public/private collaboration.
