n order to create a Bay Area where
everyone thrives, we are working to make

communities are creating an infrastructure
for building power across the region.

community power and make change in the
community a reality. When a community is
empowered, its residents help drive policies
that are responsive to their needs and
that, in turn, make their communities even
