Common Impact hosted Zion Escobar, Executive Director at Houston Freedmen’s Town Conservancy, for an insightful discussion on equitable partnerships with Chief Executive Officer Leila Saad. By leveraging the most valuable assets of a community, its people and talent, it’s possible to transform the trajectory of an entire community.
Zion shares how the Houston Freedmen’s Town, the city’s oldest Black settlement, is undergoing a renewal and requires equitable partnerships for sustained success. The Houston Freedmen’s Town Conservancy is paving the way for such partnerships by promoting co-creation and resource sharing beyond monetary means. This talk highlights the significance of the transition from corporate donors to doers and how collaborative efforts can lift capacity from the bottom up.
