Community campaigns
for moving mountains

If you need to gain the momentum for big changes in your community, Thrive can help you create and manage effective educational campaigns, communication strategies, and policy pushes. As a concerned citizen, Jeanette has helped to lead the fight against a proposed asphalt plant in Hamburg, NY and has given guidance to other communities looking to do the same. She has  organized breast cancer survivors to tackle primary pollution issues in Western New York on behalf of Breast Cancer Action, and co-facilitated a community-led task force to put forth resident policy recommendations on vacant lot reuse in the city of Buffalo. If you want to make a big change in your community, contact us and we'll talk through all of the possibilities.
