On The evening of June 18th, 2019 around 7Pm the Founder of he Community Collaboration Corporation, LLC. Leroy Carson, Jr. Gathered a group of 11 civic, fraternal, sorority and religious organizational leaders at The Life Church in Marietta, Georgia to discuss the possibility of joining forces to make greater inroads and impacts in their county by collaborating when possible. By the end of the meeting everyone agreed that this was a great idea and would begin seeking official approval from their local chapters to associate themselves with this effort. By the second meeting this group of organizations increased by three and they began to devise a strategy to focus their efforts on three specific areas of joint impact:
Collaborative Voter Engagement Strategy – This effort is designed to develop one or two initiatives that could be significantly impactful by the combined physical and intellectual resources of the collaborative group of organizations.
Community Briefing – These organizations have some common threads that link their community efforts. The goal of this initiative is to share a common communication platform to help identify issues of shared interest to galvanize support to become a larger force for good.
Youth Empowerment – Every organization involved in Solidarity Cobb are interested in youth empowerment, education, scholarship and advancement. This initiative leverages the strength of each organization to help create a common platform and effort that can increase opportunities for local youth.
The goal of Solidarity Cobb is to create opportunities for all and help to level the playing field to make a better county and a better state.
