Collective Impact

Collective Impact is the commitment of a group of actors from different sectors to a common agenda for solving a specific social problem, using a structured form of collaboration.

RRP is working on a new initiative called the Community Connection Collective, to improve the state infrastructure for welcoming and resettling refugees in Arizona.  RRP is convening an effort to bring together compatible organizations that wish to join in an alliance toward this end.  This project aspires to center the lived experiences of people arriving in Arizona as refugees as the primary change agents in their resettlement process through improving the way information and resources are shared collectively and defining common goals and related activities that increase social inclusion and empowerment of the people most impacted by resettlement.  RRP will aim to engage up to ten organizations in the first phase of the project and anticipates building on the initial work throughout 2020 and beyond.

RRP is partnering with Indigo Arizona to launch this initiative.
