Courageous Change: Reflections on 2019

Thank you for your support this past year. As you know, Community Commons and its offerings underwent a fundamental revision, and it’s been a big change for everyone. However, our vision and mission has not changed: we exist to serve the healthy communities’ movement by helping change-makers advance equitable community health and well-being. 


2019 was full of challenges for our team, but we found out who we really are and what we truly believe in. At the end of the day, it’s still all of us, together, for the common good."--Roxanne Medina-Fulcher, Executive Director


The Commons will always be a living space to encourage learning and connection among change-makers, and we will always be here to support your needs. 


The Hearts and Minds Behind Community Commons

Behind Community Commons stands the folks at the Institute for People, Place, and Possibility (IP3). IP3’s work -- both as the life force behind Community Commons and through our offering of web-based data solutions -- is founded in our commitment to improve community and population health.
