Collaboration for Regenerative Social Change
Justicewise is a fiscally sponsored project of Inquiring Systems, Inc.
The world has changed and the old ways aren’t working
Justicewise connects people and organizations with new tools and strategies that are up to the task of supporting communities working together to solve their toughest challenges. We work with a network of partners to help you integrate diverse strategies, engage everyone who has a stake in the issues, and use technology to do more with less. For you that means less time in meetings, the buy-in that’s key to eliminating barriers to progress, and greater ability to leverage resources for maximum impact.
Project planning is one half of change planning. We help you plan for the people side of change: who will be affected, how will they be affected, what do they know that you need to know, what will it take for them to support the plan?
Analysis & Strategy
Build strategic alignment for collective action. Connect collaborative strategy frameworks to organizational strategic plans. Discover how to achieve a common goal starting with what each organization brings to the table.
System Change Projects
Commit for the long haul. Stop looking for whose fault, and start looking and learning together. The only person you have the power to change is yourself.
The iBelong Project
iBelong is a volunteer-powered project of the heart sponsored by Justicewise. We believe that human connection lies at the heart of community wellbeing. iBelong exists to build neighborly connections as the foundation of a healthy, vibrant community that works together to solve shared challenges. Our work in Sonoma County, CA is growing.
Text FOOD is a bilingual program that connects people who are hungry to nearby locations that distribute free food. Sonoma County residents who use their cellphone to text the word FOOD or COMIDA to our phone number will get an immediate response with the information they need in English or Spanish.
Text FOOD is being phased in countywide in June 2020. The program was made possible by seed funding from St. Joseph Healthcare System and Rebuild North Bay, as well as the hearts and hands of community members from Sonoma Intersections Coalition, St. Joseph Community Investments, homeless advocates, and Health Action.
