Movement Day Tucson

Collaborating Leaders and Residents to Design Prototypes
That Help Tucson Neighborhoods Thrive

Movement Day Tucson is a single-day event hosted by 4Tucson every January.

4Tucson convenes city leaders and community members to invest in a Tucson neighborhood by:

  • Observing the challenges of the neighborhood through research and sharing with one another;
  • Generating solutions for the systemic problems the neighborhood is facing;
  • And creating prototypes designed to help the community thrive.

Every month following Movement Day Tucson, we collaborate with leaders and residents in Community Development Groups. The purpose of these groups is to identify the best prototype for the neighborhood we're working with and the projects needed to implement that prototype.

In January, 2021 we identified Amphi as the neighborhood to work with. Branding Amphi is the first prototype and our first major project is: Amphi Market Day.

About the Amphi Community & the Plans to Help Them Achieve Their Dreams.

4Tucson is working with city leaders and residents to create and launch prototypes that help Tucson neighborhoods thrive.
