Jason works on the ground with neighbors, attends and organizes community events, and engages residents in grassroots leadership development, neighborhood revitalization, and low-wage worker organizing. He also organizes volunteers for neighborhood revitalization projects, asset mapping, and leadership development.
“University Place and Hartley have been my home for the past few years, and the people I’ve met at Wesleyan and at Hartley Elementary have been a fundamental part of my growth. I am so excited to be able to give back to these communities,” Jason said. “I believe we are only as strong as our communities, and that’s why it’s critical to invest in these wonderful neighborhoods.”
A partnership of Civic Nebraska and Nebraska Appleseed, Collective Impact Lincoln works with residents of six Lincoln neighborhoods – Hartley, University Place, Near South, Everett, Belmont, and Clinton – to build community, develop neighborhood leaders, and take action on policies responsive to the lived experiences of Lincoln residents.
