Community Development Discussions

BLDG Memphis would like to invite our community members to participate in conversations surrounding community development as a part of the More for Memphis Project. More for Memphis is a collaboration to improve social and economic mobility in Memphis and Shelby County. This joint effort brings together more than 300 community members, nonprofits, businesses and public organizations to define the changes of our social and economic systems and policies; and identify sustainable solutions that make a shared vision for a thriving Shelby County a reality. Learn more about the More for Memphis project here

We also ask that you please complete this short survey on Community Development before the discussions. Even if you cannot make it to the discussions, we ask that you please fill it out. We value your opinion on your community.

Thank you and we will see you at the discussions!
