CoreChange is a powerful new initiative to create substantive change for our urban neighborhoods here in Cincinnati. Dr. Victor Garcia began this effort in response to the young victims of gun violence, a crime of its own. If you're unfamiliar with us, start by reading the About Us entry.
The core of CoreChange [if you will] is our Working Groups. These groups are tackling long-standing social issues that have plagued our urban communities for decades. We're taking on critical care for children, jobs for those with limited skills, transportation and changing the narrative and attitudes of local citizens. You can find a listing of our active Working Groups here.
CoreChange was inaugurated with a summit held here in Cincinnati in February, 2012. This is where working groups, principles and methodologies began to unfold. Since then, we've been working to develop the organizational structure to support our Working Group projects and actions.
Now that we have these key pieces in place, we're ready to activate, engage and awaken. Our approach is that every citizen deserves a community where peace, prosperity and health are available. Our methodologies are backed by science. Our activities are based on our passion, the common desire we share for a thriving Cincinnati.
