Strategies for Change

Mission 180's Action Strategies capture nearly two years of careful planning and community process in Roxbury, Massachusetts. The ideas have been shaped by the tireless participation and thoughtful feedback of more than 200 residents, community leaders, business owners, local and state officials, representatives of community organizations, and each person who contributed to the dialogue in at least one of the many Mission 180 meetings. Interviews, forums, working group sessions, and extensive dialogue among the champions drawn from six action teams, helped frame four key action strategies that embody a collective vision for Roxbury moving forward.

Each Action Strategy has a comprehensive vision and plan. Please click on the images below to learn more about each strategy.
