BY TAYLOR BENNETT, COMMUNITY BASED POLICY COORDINATOR, THE HUB
We believe that the people who know best how to overcome the challenges faced by the Mountain State’s communities are WV residents themselves. It’s a philosophy that The Hub works hard to put into practice in every program that we run – and our organization’s Community Development Policy Program is no different.
In order for West Virginians to feel real and lasting change in our lives, our communities and their institutions and power structures must work to serve us. They must meet our needs and offer us real opportunities in a responsive and equitable way.
These systems are possible. They are possible here, in our lifetime. These systems can only be created when we build them together.
We want to unite forces with you in creating the systems that work best for your neighbors and fellow community members, so we’ve made it easier to connect with all that The Hub’s Policy Program is doing across the state.
Check out our new Community Development Policy Program web page for information about new and ongoing programs; a regularly updated resource list that you can use to support your work in communities; and ways to stay connected with all that we’re working on together.
This is a policy program for you – the people. It is led by you and supported by us. Together, we can create the real and lasting change that we all deserve.
