San Antonio’s Community Vision and the Big, Bold Efforts of the Last Decade

A community vision is significant not just for what it says, but for what it pushes us to accomplish together. Today, 72% of the community indicators tracked to measure success are moving in the right direction, up from 37% in 2013. Learn about the big, bold efforts—collaborative, targeted interventions and millions of dollars in public and private investment—that led this progress.

 

The Importance of San Antonio’s Community Vision During COVID-19

In 2010, thousands of San Antonians envisioned an “entire community—individuals, businesses, local government, nonprofits, and faith-based organizations” that “takes responsibility for our collective well-being.” Learn about the individuals and organizations rising to San Antonio’s Community Vision during COVID-19 to serve San Antonians in need and SA2020’s ongoing efforts to reaffirm and strengthen the shared vision for the next decade.

Equity: More than a Buzzword 

In this time of crisis, multi-sector organizations are shifting the way they work to meet the needs of San Antonians most vulnerable to COVID-19. This is the meaning of equity: policies, procedures, programs, and the distribution of resources account for the different histories, challenges, and needs of the people we serve. In this session, participants will learn why advancing equity is critical to reaching San Antonio’s Community Vision and gain resources to get started or deepen their existing work.

 

Results Driven, Data Informed: Using Data to Strengthen Impact

This interactive workshop strengthens the capacity of participants to analyze data, identify, prioritize, and evaluate performance metrics, and create evaluation processes to make a greater impact in their work. This workshop will utilize the data in SA2020’s 2019 Community Impact Report and City Council Profiles.

Building Relationships for Transparent and Inclusive Community Engagement
