Naomi Davis’ core beliefs can be summarized as follows: “Conserve or collapse; help is not on the way; nothing trumps self-help; only a whole-system solution can transform a whole-system problem.”  To that end, she founded Blacks In Green (BIG)  to create a 5-year green-village-building proof of concept in  a TIF in Chicago’s West Woodlawn community. She has also been instrumental in the negotiations surrounding a community benefits agreement between the Englewood community and Norfolk Southern Railroad. 

Join Naomi and me as she shares lessons learned from this work, as well as the 8 Principles of Green Village Building.Call in live at (347) 884-8121.
