Not the most exciting concept, but a pretty good way to inventory community assets, encourage coordination, and maximize their usage. The Notre Dame Institute for Latino Studies just released a demographic analysis of the Chicago Latino community, combined with a directory of Latino organizations. In the North End of Springfield, rising star Vanessa Pabon led an effort to create a similar directory for The North End Campus Coalition. And wouldn’t it be great to couple it with a similar demographic analysis, and to update them both regularly? UMass Boston’s Gastón Institute Demography Dept. would be a natural partner, but what about some local talent?
