February 2019 - FAB Meeting #10
UB backbone staff present: David Harrington, Kassa Belay, Dionne Grayman, Jason Ludwig, Danielle Augustine
Number of FAB members present: 15
The FAB wants more information about Strive Together before voting on whether or not to join the network.
There were specific concerns about losing UB’s unique identity, giving up credit and intellectual property to others, and whether the Strive would benefit the FAB.
There was also a specific request for data that demonstrated how Strive membership improves the ability of collective impact groups to create change in their communities.
The FAB identified numerous examples of people, places, events, cultures, and history that could be learned about in a Family Co-Op, and expressed different ways that the narrative about Brownsville would be remixed if they were telling it.
