Highlights from the two-year Economic Mobility Action Network pilot

Our two-year pilot Economic Mobility Action Network concluded this June! Watch the video above to hear from our six participating community foundations as they reflect on their time in the network and share the wonderful work they are doing across a wide range of issues.

Thank you to the following community foundations for their outstanding and ongoing commitment to advance economic mobility in their communities:

EMAN was pivotal to developing my thinking on Economic Mobility. Because of EMAN, the economic mobility strategies we develop in Erie County will be more thorough and guided by the principles of equity, power, and self-determination; ensuring people not only achieve economic self-sufficiency, but also the power to choose the course of their lives.”
Maria Whyte, DCE, Erie County GovernmentCommunity Foundation for Greater Buffalo Team

Our Network participants met in person for their final convening this past June in Chicago. Participants shared lessons learned and key takeaways while exploring several Chicago neighborhoods and sites thanks to The Chicago Community Trust
