What is the 'I Commit" Community Commitment? The charge must be led to organize entire communities. "I Commit" Community Commitment will help build the involvement of all residents and stakeholder who have a vested interest for the long haul. Organizing and Strengthening what already exist in the community "I Commit" Community Commitment will eradicate issues plaguing our distressed community by attaining a goal of 100% participation of all residents and stakeholders, this will improve our community for the better. We can only revolutionize the narrative, turn around, change, improve, and enact change in our distressed community, When everyone works together collectively for the same goals. Do you believe working together as a community will support Enacting Change?

The Community: In distressed communities, the community does not work together collectively, everyone has their own tools attempting to attack the same problems. Community members with the most to lose are the residents, and yet they are not involved. Although everyone is obligated, residents hold most of the responsibility, but the residents need help from stakeholders. In a distressed community, everyone who live, work, or has a business, is obligated to be part of providing and supporting the community. The stakeholders have a duty to do this by working together to enact change on a major level. The Community Commitment will be utilized in many communities; therefore, the goal is to not push people out, but instead, provide tools/resources so that every resident, stakeholder is responsible for our distressed communities. The Community Commitment is designed to eliminate any excuses or reasons not to take part, but if any resident or stakeholder doesn’t want to be part of bettering our community, at least now we know where they stand. Do you believe Residents Participation play a important part in the community, helping to Enact Change????

Our first event for the “I Commit” was on October 10,2020 the HelloWalk, The HelloWalk is part of our Hello Campaign and Curriculum. The HelloWalk was such a success we are doing it again soon so that we do not lose momentum. We reached 375 homes with 25 volunteers from the community and around the community, we had awesome conversations, and everyone was happy to see us. We handed out our SpotLight Book that has valuable community information about meetings, activities and how to get involved. Our next HelloWalk will be virtual, a day and time will be selected, Volunteers will meet up virtually via google forms, zoom, text, or phone call. Community/Block assignments for the walk will be given. the SpotLight Book will be delivered, shipped or volunteers can pick them up in advance of the day of the HelloWalk. Volunteers will handout the SpotLight Book, Say Hello, Hold Valuable Conversations with Neighbors. The HelloWalk should take no more than an 30 minutes to an hour to complete unless you are having great conversations.
