Design for the Commons

By Malikia Johnson, 2020-09-04

Hello Everyone, 

My name is Malikia Johnson and I am a new member of the community. It's been so nice to see everyone's stories and reflections about this very important work! I wanted to share with everyone a project that two partners and I have been working on called Design for the Commons. It's simply a toolkit for neighborhoods to use to create systems where care and trust are predictable outcomes. Not a new idea but we tried to make it a more intriguing idea. If you get the chance to visit the site and download it we would love your feedback. I look forward with getting to know more of you well. I am based in DC so if any of you are near perhaps we could meet in person when it's safer to do so.
