"There is no such thing as a single-issue struggle because we do not live single-issue lives." -Audre Lorde

During 2014-2015, WACY pursued an ambitious process to better align with the Collective Impact model, which included developing a Leadership Team. Convening a high-level team of local cross-sector leaders, known as a Leadership Team, is one critical component of Collective Impact necessary for solving complex community problems and creating sustainable, systemic change. On June 24, 2015, WACY held its first Leadership Team meeting with community leaders who have come together to improve outcomes for children and youth in Washtenaw County.
