Neighborhood Connections was proud to host Grassroots Grantmakers’ On the Ground learning gathering! On the Ground is Grassroots Grantmakers annual, highly-regarded learning gathering for those who are investing in local communities and the groups that everyday people form for mutual aid and collective action.
This year’s On the Ground, from September 15 to 19 at Trinity Commons, used Neighborhood Connections’ work in Cleveland as a platform for exploring the realities of working from a “we begin with residents” perspective.
Attending an On the Ground is not like attending a regular conference because Grassroots Grantmakers has a peer-learning orientation and a commitment to meeting design that builds from the expertise, experience, passion and questions of people in the room.
