From October 2016 through May 2017, we were privileged to travel to all fourteen MARC communities. During our whirlwind visits, we asked MARC leaders to show us concrete examples of how their networks were building community resilience—no small feat, given the often-intangible nature of our work. They rose to the occasion.
These fourteen stories, captured so beautifully by Anndee Hochman, represent only a handful of the conversations we had and the places we visited. Together, they reveal the breadth, diversity and creativity present in these communities. We hope that, like us, you will be moved and inspired by them and that you’ll glimpse your own community, neighbors and possibilities in these portraits.
