GoalsAchieve Economic Mobility: We will adopt the US Partnership on Mobility from Poverty’s 3-prong definition of Economic Mobility, namely, economic success, power and autonomy, and being valued in community, and we will use the Urban Institute’s newly released, complementary Mobility Metrics to help our entire region define goals and measure success against them. Local data will be collected and analyzed through Insight Region, the new Center for Community Research at the Community Foundation.
Promote Racial Justice and Equity: We will conduct an event series that discusses structural racism and promotes local initiatives and strategies addressing it. We will fund and therefore encourage other anchor institutions across Northern Virginia who are conducting similar convenings promoting racial justice and equity. We will invest in local media to help elevate voices in underrepresented neighborhoods in Northern Virginia.
Catalyze Inclusive Systems of Economic Growth: We will continuously make the economic case for inclusivity with powerful national and local data. We will work collaboratively across the social, civic, government, and private sectors to catalyze inclusive economic growth and help aspiring, hardworking entrepreneurs and small business owners from local Latinx, Hispanic, African American, Korean, Ethiopian, El Salvadorian, Vietnamese, and other communities in Northern Virginia that seek to maintain and strengthen their businesses through COVID-19 and beyond obtain the credit, resources, services and investments they need to thrive.
