Mission and Vision
Our mission at the Southeast Georgetown Community Council (SEGCC) is to facilitate community problem solving by bridging the gaps between neighbors, city agencies, elected representatives and other groups. We utilize a grassroots, approach in order to fulfill that mission by focusing on 3 goals:
- Connecting community members through social and cultural events
- Partnering with other organizations to better utilize resources and avoid duplication of effort
- Promoting civic and economic engagement of Southeast Georgetown
A community where no member feels excluded, shamed, or silenced and where all members — of all races, ethnicity, citizenship, educational background, and socioeconomic status — feel valued, respected, empowered, acknowledged, and included in the decisions that affect the community and neighborhoods.
Why Can’t We Be Friends? – Ask a Black Dude
The Why Can’t We Be Friends series of talks are meant to provide attendees with a judgement-free safe space to interact respectfully with panelists representing various under-represented, marginalized, and/or misunderstood groups to have honest moderated Q&A and live discussions.
