We invite you to join the conversation.

Have you ever looked at an issue like ensuring equity for all transit (WG2), promoting diverse business enterprises (WG6), creating a stronger community, promoting racial healing, or starting a memorial garden and thought…

“If I had more time, I’d get involved in something like that.” Or, “I don’t know enough to add anything to the solution, and I wouldn’t know where to start.”


Connect & Propel Tampa 2019 was a community gathering with hundreds of diverse voices throughout Tampa Bay that came together for 2.5 days and discussed what we wanted for the future of Tampa. Twenty-one Workgroups and eight subgroups were formed to talk about what a positive future looks like and where we wanted to start working to make that a reality. These workgroups are on all topics from a vision for the City, to creating a canned foods and clothing drive for a community.

And, you can jump in and join a workgroup at any time!
