Invest in Your Neighborhood
Change Every Day
Originally Aired: Tuesday, March 19, 2019
From joining food co-ops to shopping local, communities are talking about how to invest in themselves. Learn from leaders leveraging the power of the collective to approach community building — and how every community can take steps toward fully owning local initiatives and solutions.
Guests include Fonta Gilliam, founder and CEO of Sou Sou, Ebele Ifedigbo, co-founder of The Hood Incubator, and Allen Woods, co-founder of MORTAR. Hosted by WNYC’s Shumita Basu.
