Nominations are now open for the West Sider of the Year award 2018!
Through generations Indigenous Womxn and Womxn of Color have been the backbone of our families and neighborhoods. This summit we are aiming to center the voices, stories, and lived experiences of IWWOC of color in our neighborhoods, our city, and government. This includes Femmes, Queer, Trans, and Gender Fluid people of color whom do not identify with or feel comfortable or safe in cis-male spaces. Join us as we create a space to honor what makes us up as IWWOC: our physical, our intellectual, our emotional and our spiritual.
Make your voice heard in a West Side legacy project!
WSCO is adapting the West Side Equitable Development Scorecard, a community document that needs your voice! The Equitable Development Scorecard is a tool that will answer the question, “Who benefits from any new development coming to the West Side?”. It ensures that the principles and practices of equitable development, environmental justice, and affordability are applied to our community and that plans for economic development and wealth creation benefit everyone. Make sure you have your voice reflected, review the scorecard and give your comments here! Keep an eye out for the Scorecard team out and about, in person engagement is happening through the fall.
The draft of the West Side Equitable Development Scorecard is now available to be reviewed by the community. The scorecard has been adapted for the West Side neighborhood by a team of residents over the last few months.
