Brenda and her family live across the street from a 1-mile strip of vacant land and decided to do something about it. She became inspired by our community engagement process and took action. Brenda and her neighbors organized and lead the design and vision of what is now the 5-acre Lara Linear Park.
“To hear that there’s still plans to connect this to go farther or to connect to the Riverbed, that just keeps me fueled to continue to organize my community so that we can offer something better for the next generation.”
Help us keep the momentum going. Lara Linear Park is just one project counting towards our goal to produce 20 greenspaces by 2020. With your support we can inspire more community members like Brenda to join the fight in creating new community lead green-spaces in our communities.
Join the fight to create greenspaces that cultivate community empowerment. Your tax-deductible donation will be MATCHED dollar-for-dollar if you donate before the year ends! Here’s your chance to make TWICE THE IMPACT.
We have a lot to fight for.
