My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Re:Vision, Denver, CO, USA
I've worked with ReVision in a variety of capacities. I began as an educator who wanted to understand how they were organizing more equitable social change in their neighborhood. I then expanded my role so that I could also be more involved with the work that they do in the community by serving as a board member. What most marks ReVision as an amazing nonprofit, in my opinion, is how they recognize and build upon the social and cultural assets of community members to create collaborative visions for the neighborhood that they then enact together. The people who make up ReVision are always engaged in critical reflection on what they're doing, why they're doing it, and how. They are an organization that is committed to empowering residents, to creating social structures that can facilitate this empowerment, and to learning from their ongoing work. This is hard work and ReVision not only does not shy away from challenges, it embraces them.
