What is community activism?
From a CAN perspective
it means we get involved. As issues arise affecting our families, neighborhood, environment and world we actively work to
find and fight for solutions. We continue to seek ways to raise awareness and build coalitions and collaborate with others
on common areas of opportunity. We work hard to bring together the voices of the people so the community can be heard and
their collective needs acted upon. We seek to leverage community activism to influence policy, process and outcomes that matter
and are important to the community. We believe in the concept that "it takes a village". We see ourselves as the
village. We also believe that "the part is not more important than the whole" and that we are all connected.
