Systemic change doesn't happen overnight and it doesn't need to happen through organized "initiatives" that are only deemed successful if they're around 10 years or more.
Real community change is cumulative, built on the backs of all these efforts. Who cares if they don't stick around until "the problem is solved?" With all due respect, I would argue that these aren't issues that can be "solved."
Rather, the more we do to create a community that makes space for risk-taking and idea-sharing, the more likely things are to get better over time. I applaud those brave enough to experiment with different ways to put their ideas out into the zeitgeist.
If there's one thing we can do to help encourage change and retain our best and brightest, it would be to stop eating our own.
I love the new logo an think that Fixer Creative and the CVB did an awesome job!
