Tools of Working in Community: Community Engagement for Opportunity Zone Projects and Beyond


Our final 2020 webinar will feature a group of community partners who have worked to guide development in their neighborhoods toward equitable outcomes. They will share their experience with several unique community engagement tools and give context on the community work necessary to support a community-driven processes around opportunity zone development—and development in general. After hearing from our presenters, we will reflect in small groups and share back our thoughts on how we can incorporate their insights into our work.
