Movement Building & Collective Impact

Make Communities brings together collaborators across networks and sectors to understand their shared challenges and collective power.

We are stronger together than we are apart, but meaningful collaboration requires shared understanding and empathy. It requires the willingness and ability navigate our differences while working with a shared analysis and toward a shared purpose – even if we take different paths.
