Community Mobilization Resource Coalition (CMRC), an equity initiative of Diversity Council, provides a platform for equitable access to community resources and civic involvement by expanding capacity for diverse populations, serving as a bridge to community integration, and developing public policy and social contract through diverse perspectives. Our purpose is to change power dynamics by amplifying voices and co-designing processes and systems where everyone participates and benefits equitably. CMRC is the only coalition in the region doing evidence-based equity work identified through community needs assessment.
CMRC is focused on community. This entire initiative reflects the development of relationships and collaboration between agencies, nonprofit organizations, businesses, and the entire population of the region, particularly underrepresented populations. We align our efforts with racial and ethnic groups who are organizing and establishing alliances to amplify diverse voices from within their communities.
Through CMRC, minority communities grow diverse leaders in a shared leadership model and activate their constituencies to engage in civic activity. Participants benefit from skill building and networking and develop strengths they can apply in a variety of leadership roles; they become integrated in community development efforts, bringing their unique competencies to institutions and systems.
