Following many years of disinvestment and neglect, mistrust exists in many communities. Meaningful community engagement can help build back this trust. When a community is working on a shared vision for a better future, engagement is necessary. Partnering to include voices that have been left behind in the past is critical. People with lived experience of inequities can provide new insights into problems and solutions. Including community representatives in a project or plan is critical to achieving the shared vision.
