At Cities of Service, we know that real change is happening in cities across the world — on Main Street, in city council, and at neighborhood association meetings.
We also know that, more often than not, the secret to change is unity: beginning with the knowledge that it’s not us versus them, but we the people, of the people, by the people, and for the people. All the people.
We work with mayors in cities across the U.S. and the U.K. to combat the us versus them epidemic by bringing leaders and citizens together to solve problems and build the one thing that’s missing between us and them: trust. 2017 showed us that this approach works — whether reducing blight in Tulsa, increasing food security in Anchorage, decreasing home foreclosures in Detroit, or building resilience to natural disasters in Jersey City.
Thank you to our partners for helping us make the world a better place, one city at a time. We look forward to another year of action.
