i2i 6-Month Capacity Building (ICJIA Initiative)
I am pleased to announce that I’ve completed Institute 2 Innovate (i2i) 6-month capacity building curriculum that is designed to help organizations build the skills, knowledge, and connections to effectively respond to the challenges of violence that has plagued our most vulnerable communities. Because of this Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority (ICJIA) initiative, True Believers Community Connections (TBCC) is now positioned with support and investment that improves and reinforces public safety.
