Communities Act Now (CAN) is an action platform for equitable development in Cincinnati. It is made up of four of the most urgently needed policy initiatives in this area.
Each initiative is designed to address what we already know from multiple studies and assessments, and each is anchored in best practices learned from other cities across the country. With the success of these efforts, Cincinnati will take its first critical steps on the path to equitable development.
The platform’s initiatives are driven by community groups made up of concerned residents and advocates for justice. These initiatives are spearheaded by community-based organizations including:
Cincinnati Action for Housing Now
Cincinnati Educational Justice Coalition
Cincinnati Federation of Teachers
Greater Cincinnati Coalition for the Homeless
Peaslee Neighborhood Center
Many more organizations, grassroots groups, and individuals support and work within these efforts.
We are organizing and working together for equitable development, compelled by the following shared beliefs:
If you, too, share these beliefs, then the work is ours to do together.
Please join us in building political momentum to realize our vision for Cincinnati and beyond!
