Calls to Action

At SA2020 we believe everyone is capable of affecting change. Over the last ten years, San Antonio has made incremental progress in teen birth rate, high school graduation, healthcare access, employment, and more by taking collective responsibility for advancing Community Results. We also know that serious work remains, and the COVID-19 crisis has exacerbated systemic inequities. 

How might you help make the greatest impact toward San Antonio’s Community Vision over the next ten years?
