Our new SCCAP AmeriCorps member Nick McLain has re-launched the Facebook group for supporters of the Monroe County Circles Initiative.
If you have a Facebook profile, do a search on Facebook for “Monroe County Circles Initiative” to join the group.
For those not familar with the Circles Initiative, it is an intentional way for people to build relationships across class and race lines to end poverty in the community. It aims to:
– Change the mind-set of the community so that it wants to end poverty
– Change goals, policies, and approaches to end poverty, and
– Empower people in poverty to help solve community problems while transitioning out of poverty themselves.
Welcome, Nick, and thanks for re-starting this Facebook page and making it permanent so that it will be updated on an ongoing basis with information and photos relating to the Monroe County Circles Initative.
