Let's Get Together

We like to refer to San Antonio as a “small big city,” and it’s true. It’s also true that we are one of the most economically divided cities in the nation. All of us have big dreams for our families and children—but we don’t all have access to opportunities to make these dreams a reality. Together, we can make it better for everyone.

Who Is My Neighbor?

That’s the question we’re asking every day. Join us as we meet and talk with the experts—local families, nonprofit leaders, historians, economists, ministers, community organizers, and more—about the strengths and struggles of your neighbors across the city.
