Making Private, Public and Nonprofit Partnerships Work.

Change is only possible if all parts of a community are engaged and empowered. This panel session weaves together three Spartanburg stories in the throes of community-centered efforts to recreate equitable and thriving communities. Grounded in historical context, panelists will highlight key strategic and tactical threads apparent across these separate stories with common elements from influencing political decisions and building collective agreement and partnerships, to ways to generate authentic, strategic community relationships. Even more central to these stories is the important role nonprofits play in helping move the needle on community-centered equity work with government, philanthropy and other public institutions.
