Our goal is to transform Tucson one neighborhood at a time.
We do this by convening leaders and community members to apply best practices based on detailed research, and with the community's voice speaking into the prototype design.
Collaboration is facilitated in two phases.
First, leaders will convene according to the City Focus Areas they are addressing. Poverty Reduction leaders will focus exclusively on reducing poverty and Economic leaders will focus exclusively on economic opportunity and development.
During this first phase, both groups of leaders will collaborate across the private, public and social sectors within their different focus areas. Leaders will leverage in-depth reports and Design Thinking methods in their collaborations.
After this, each group will share with the other what they have developed. This way, each group can focus on the area where they have passion and expertise, but also learn from leaders who work in a deeply connected focus area.
Movement Day Tucson is not just a day! Following January 22nd, each prototype will be tested in the Amphi Neighborhood. Throughout 2021, we will learn how to make improvements to these prototypes based on their measurable impacts in this neighborhood. The improved prototypes will also be launched into other neighborhoods throughout the city. It starts on January 22nd:
Movement Day Tucson is even more than what is happening in one amazing day. Through this event, 4Tucson convenes influential city leaders to collaborate – and to form strategic alliances.
It is these alliances that will launch the prototypes we designed together and measure their impacts so that our work can be truly transformational in the lives of the people we care about.
A Strategic Ally is: any organization or agency that is like-minded (faith-friendly) that is working in or on a specific city problem and would like to partner with us. The Strategic Alliance may or may not have a key leader that joins 4Tucson.
Please join us as an ally; you are needed!
