TH7.15.03 Community Engagement with Communities of Color in Rural and Urban Areas

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The purpose of this round-table is to discuss effective community engagement strategies used in urban and rural communities of color. While there are many community engagement frameworks, guides, and toolkits on how to best implement a community engagement strategy, many do not take into consideration how to effectively do so in communities of color. Furthermore, many frameworks fail to consider strategies most effective in engaging members of rural communities compared to strategies most effective in engaging members of urban communities. The discussion leaders have been working for several years in both urban and rural communities in New Orleans, Louisiana, and Mississippi and will provide examples from their experiences providing community engagement technical assistance to community-based organizations.
