On March 19, Collective Impact Lincoln will release the first round of findings from its door-to-door listening project in the city’s neighborhoods with the highest rates of poverty.

The presentation will be part of a 5:30 to 7 p.m. open house at the Malone Community Center, 2032 U St. A short presentation of the team’s initial findings is set for 6 p.m.

Collective Impact Lincoln, a partnership between Civic Nebraska, Nebraska Appleseed, and the South of Downtown Community Development Organization, was launched in 2017. It focuses on six Lincoln neighborhoods: Belmont, Clinton, Everett, Hartley, Near South, and University Place. The team’s goal is to connect with residents, learn more about the local issues that matter most, and help build community leaders to improve neighborhoods.

The team first hit Lincoln’s streets last fall, going door to door to have conversations about what neighbors like about their community and the things they feel need to be improved.

Collective Impact Lincoln aims to knock on 10,000 doors by the end of summer 2018 to continue its research. The group will knock on 30,000 doors by summer 2020.

Here’s more about the open house on Facebook. You can also RSVP to José Lemus at jose.lemus@civicnebraska.org or at 402-904-5191.
