From New Local:
Community power is the belief that people should have a say over the places in which they live and the services they use.
It is a growing movement – with communities across the country, and the world, working together to improve places, public services and each other’s lives.
At New Local, we believe community power has the potential to answer some of the deepest and most persistent challenges in our society today. Our work is driven by deepening the case for change, and helping people and institutions to put this transformational approach into practice.
