At SA2020 we believe everyone is capable of affecting change. In the near-decade since the original visioning process, San Antonio has made incremental progress in teen birth rate, high school graduation, healthcare access, employment, and more by taking collective responsibility for advancing Community Results. We also know that work still remains, and COVID-19 has compounded community need. How might you make the greatest impact toward San Antonio’s Community Vision?
