DESCRIPTION: During “A Discussion on Communities”, we will discuss ways we can better identify communities in need, how to build better relationships, and what our barriers in reaching them are. People don’t come with barriers the way institutions and organizations do. Most services and programs have some components set up to deal with community specific barriers but we have to shift our thinking from perceived “deficits” and turn the lens inward on overall programming and craft services that truly serve the full spectrum of needs that people in our constituencies, authentically.
