"JCCI's staff and process provided concerned citizens and public officials with the organizational tools to create a practical plan to improve the long-term conditions of these abandoned and neglected cemeteries."

Our process for convening diverse groups to create positive change in their community is both time-tested and externally evaluated. This citizen-led inquiry process was recognized as a national model for citizen engagement and problem-solving by the Pew Partnership for Civic Change as part of the Solutions for America initiative. "Communities across the country have identified unique solutions to some of our most critical community issues," said Suzanne Morse, executive director of the Pew Partnership. "Engaging citizens in solutions to complex issues is vital to strengthening communities. JCCI's citizen-led inquiry process is setting the standard for how to engage diverse citizens in community solutions."
We can facilitate bringing the community together or train local community facilitators in best practices for shared engagement for lasting results.
