It must be 2012. There are innumerable connections, alignments and synchronicities emerging. CoreChange is one of them.
Here in Cincinnati, 'rust belt' factors and urban core issues have plagued most of our 52 neighborhoods, many for a generation or more. CoreChange was initiated by Dr. Victor Garcia, who saw far too many young people in the emergency room due to gun violence.
CoreChange was inaugurated at a summit in February with over 500 people for the three-day event. We learned Appreciative Inquiry, the value of Unlikely Pairs, the need for critical and creative thinking, and the value of active engagement. The goal is to create Peace, Prosperity and Health in our neighborhoods, and is being implemented by some 15 sub-groups focused on transportation, urban farming, returning citizens, young people and more.
