You are invited to a half-day Community Forum
sponsored by the Building Bridges Initiative to:
- get an update on the activities that have been going on in the community that are moving towards the vision we developed together
- explore “Collective Impact” as a process for achieving big results toward the vision
Much has happened in the community since the first Building Bridges gathering back in November, 2011, but we still have a ways to go.
The lists of activities and possible big results in the attached flyer are only examples of the things we can explore together as we move forward and are not meant to be exhaustive.
Please respond by April 30th to let us know whether or not you can come to the forum (email- firstname.lastname@example.org, phone: 277-3401).
You are receiving this invitation because you are an important community leader.
Please note: If you forward this message to someone else you’d like to invite, please emphasize that we do need to get RSVPs so we can plan for food and materials.
On behalf of the Building Bridges Planning Group, we hope you can come.
The “Building Bridges” initiative is a collaborative effort of The Dorothy Cotton Institute, the Whole Community Project, Sustainable Tompkins, CCE Environment Program, CCE Green Jobs Program, Ithaca College Commit to Change Initiative, Groundswell, Natural Leaders Initiative, the Multicultural Resource Center, Alternatives Federal Credit Union, Center for Transformative Action, Dryden Solutions, GreenStar Community Projects, the Sustainability Center, Get Your Green Back Tompkins, Cayuga Medical Center, Local First Ithaca, and others, to build, support and maintain a local movement in the Tompkins County region to create a “socially just and ecologically sound local economy”
Thanks for the work that you do!
