MISSION & VISION

OUR MISSION

Promoting equity in local communities through research, information, and engagement 

The Collaborative Community Initiative (CCI) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization based in New Orleans, Louisiana. Our mission is to use research and data analysis, community awareness, and small business engagement to highlight the economic disparities faced by Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) communities and empower them to create change.

OUR VISION

Inform, engage, connect

We envision thriving BIPOC communities that experience economic equity and prosperity. In order to achieve this vision, we focus on three key principles: inform, engage, connect. We will make sure that BIPOC communities are informed on the disparities that exist, are engaged in the process to alleviate those disparities, and are connected with each other. This is how economic equity can be achieved and sustained.
