WHY THE GRASSROOTS PODCAST

Grassroots groups play a fundamental role in building communities.

Deep Access

They are essential for deep and culturally appropriate support to individuals and initiatives.

Limited Resources

Yet, the work is mostly invisible, often with very limited financial capacity and time.

Affect Change

We want to change this dynamic, especially for emerging leaders from equity-deserving groups.

This podcast aims to hear the voices and challenges of grassroots groups while they deconstruct and transform the big challenges that the city is facing.
