Home News and Updates Announcing: CNHED’s Community Voices Academy Cohort II

CNHED is excited to announce Cohort II of our advocacy and community engagement initiative: the Community Voices Academy!

The Community Voices Academy (CVA) provides a space for low-to-moderate-income (LMI) Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) who have lived experience to obtain tools, training, and resources that will assist them in conveying their perspectives and achieving their policy and advocacy goals. The CVA works in partnership with CNHED’s other working groups in developing solutions, and budget recommendations, and tackling other issues facing the community development field. The knowledge, opinions, and perspectives of CVA members are of equal weight to the other working groups.

The CVA is a 10-month program and serves as a vital liaison between CNHED, our members, and the residents most impacted by the District’s budget and policy choices surrounding affordable housing and community economic development. As trusted advocates within their communities, CVA members will cultivate, motivate, and engage their neighbors to take action on issues that impact them the most.

CNHED takes pride in our partnership with residents and community leaders and is committed to directly integrating their voices into our organizational and policy decision-making process.
