Midtown Arts Mercantile Building in San Jose
In 2015, we came together to advocate for a groundbreaking development concept which the City of Santa Clara, California eventually voted to support. The Agrihood (Win6 Village) became an example of how together we can engage a diverse community, shape project designs, and then persuade city government to back community-supported development.
From incredible participation and the powerful example it set, a new grassroots organization called Catalyze SV was established this year by many community advocates and me. Because of your past community engagement, we thought you’d be interested to learn more about Catalyze SV and perhaps get involved.
Briefly, Catalyze SV has two main objectives:
1. Create a more collaborative, inclusive and effective community engagement process, and
2. Positively influence projects that align with our values and to ensure they are built.
I have another incredible piece of news to share: Catalyze SV is humbled to receive a grant from the Knight Foundation to the tune of over $28,000 to further our efforts. We can’t thank them enough for their support and confidence in our vision!
So, I hope you do three things:
Yours in community,
Founding Board Member, Catalyze SV
