It's no secret that we love the work of Jane Jacobs, whose birthday coincides with our founding. To celebrate, we have joined forces with Jane's Walk to offer citizen-led walking tours for community-based city building in Stockton.
Inspired by Jacobs, these walks connect people to the places they live, work, and play - convene conversation and highlight different voices and perspectives - hold space for people to exercise power and agency as active, engaged members of their community - dismantle walls created by distance, difference, and apathy - and lastly (importantly) foster civic leadership.
Our goal is to lead 4 walks beginning in the month of May in 4 different neighborhoods, kicking off the first walk on May 6th in Downtown Stockton. On our walk, we will observe and study Jane's 10 Big Ideas in action (go to http://bit.ly/janeswalk17 to learn more).
These walks are totally free of charge, 100% community-led, and are meant to give you the tools you need to engage in meaningful conversation and action in your neighborhood - to share stories about their communities, explore their cities, and connect with others.
