Introducing Change 4 Real
In this exciting climate of free
exploration of the many possibilities for change,
Sojourner-Douglass College proudly announces Change4Real, a
no-holds-barred forum on transforming urban communities from the
bottom – up. Now that the previously ignored ideas of
“change” and “bottom up” development are front and center in the
national discourse, thanks to President Barak Obama’s stunning
change-themed journey to the White house, an entirely new world
of opportunities - to discuss, define, develop and deploy 21st
Century “bottom up” models in every sphere of human endeavor -
Growing out of a real life, real time, bottom – up transformation of the neighborhoods known as Oldtown, surrounding the College’s East Baltimore campus, Change4Real is much more than mere academic exercises. Rather, it is a dynamic and interactive blend of theoretical visioning, resource development and practical implementation to help determine, in real time, the parameters of change in community development, one of the most challenging arenas of our present time. Therefore, we enthusiastically invite the entire community to not just learn about but join this fast growing “grass roots” movement for community transformation through our new web-based portal, Change4Real.
