This Peer Learning Forum is a follow up to the Community Development Sector 101 web conference held on August 26, 2016. During this highly interactive one-hour discussion, participants will discuss key opportunities, challenges, and next steps for partnerships and joint efforts between the community development sector, community safety advocates, and early childhood systems builders. The community development sector spends $200B annually. How can this be in service to community safety and positive early childhood development. The discussion will be an opportunity to learn from peer experiences while drawing on the expertise of the staff from the Build Health Places Network (a national organization promoting partnerships between the public health and community development sectors).
