Accomplishments for Modeling by Organizations Nationwide
CommUNITY 2000 was designed so that its objectives would resonate well beyond the parameters of the project itself.
To that end, the CommUNITY 2000 partners' purpose in investing their time, effort and ingenuity in the project was two-fold: to prevent or respond to community tensions within their own spheres of influence, and to provide interested individuals and organizations with a variety of strategies adaptable to their particular circumstances.
What follows is the CommUNITY 2000 Menu of Strategies. It offers a thumbnail sketch of each successful tension-reduction plan implemented during the two-year project, and a brief explanation of why, generally speaking, the strategy worked.
This Menu is meant to serve as a tool for anyone seeking effective ways to reduce, respond to or reconcile tensions.*
