How to build community

Cassandra West

What does it take to build a community? Mostly a little effort by all of us. Check out the list here for ideas--or come up with your own. We borrowed most of this list from a poster we got from Chicagoan Naomi Davis, founder of Blacks in Green. Turn off your TV Leave your house Know your neighbor Greet people Look up when you’re walking Plant flowers Use your public library Play together Buy from local merchants and farmers Share what you have Talk to children in your neighborhood Support neighborhood schools Fix it even if you didn’t break it Garden together Pick up litter Read stories aloud Dance in the street Talk to the mail carrier Help carry something heavy Barter for your goods Start a tradition Ask a question Hire young people for odd jobs Organize a block party Bake extra and share Ask for help when you need it Open your shades Sing together Take back the night Listen before you react to anger Mediate a conflict Seek to understand Learn from new and uncomfortable angles Know that no one is silent though many are not heard Work to change that
