About the event organizer

My goal is to transform the way my community u201cdoesu201d organization work. Oftentimes, we get sucked into a protocol and formula for doing work that is not rooted in culture or community. In turn, our organizations deviate from placing the community as their focus and instead, prioritize the almighty dollar. The Communiversity strives to redefine the relationship between community institutions, community engagement, and academia. Our events range from a variety of topics such as African-American Studies lessons, nonprofit help and organizational development tactics.
