Together through IMPACT, we are able to take on multiple problem areas together each year. Because not all solutions are achievable in one year, we remain committed until we reach our goal.
Our primary focuses are:
Affordable Housing: We want 3000 new affordable homes built by 2030 for low income families by 2030 by significantly increasing funding, and changing zoning and land use rules. Find out more here.
Preschool Access: We want to close the achievement and opportunity gap that exists in our school systems by ensuring preschool hours are flexible enough for working families. Find out more here.
Care for Creation: Climate scientists have found that, to avoid the worst effects of climate change, we must cut carbon emissions in half by 2030. In our region, transportation is the single largest source of carbon emissions. Most of those emissions are caused by cars. We are working to get folks out of cars, into public transit and to make public transit more safe, reliable and accessible!
