The Haile/US Bank Foundation in Cincinnati has an ambitious goal to transform people in their community from being those with ideas to those who can make those ideas happen to those who are ultimately the next generation of community movers and shakers.
This is being done through a project called People’s Liberty. People’s Liberty gives cash grants, workspace, support services, and training to people with ideas in the community to help them make their ideas a reality. This hopefully helps them become engaged in community making at the highest levels.
I sat down at the City Lab conference with Eric Avner, CEO of People’s Liberty, who gave an overview of the project and some of the ideas that have come to life through it. If the podcast doesn’t display for you, click over to listen on Soundcloud.
