What We Care About
From our 2015 YP Survey we discovered that Young Professionals ranked the below focus areas as essential to having a vibrant community and areas for the YP Council in particular to focus our efforts:
Arts & Culture
Creativity improves the quality of life and gives a community character. It’s an opportunity to express what we think, what we feel and what we want to change.
We support mixed-income, mixed-use developments with housing, retail, entertainment and complete streets. We value convenience, productivity — and walkability.
Using a car should be optional, not a necessity. We advocate for a multi-modal transit system that is accessible by all, helping us reach our full potential as an equitable and sustainable community.
Diversity & Inclusion
A community should respect and welcome all. Diversity and inclusion strengthens bonds within a community, rather than creating new divisions.
Entrepreneurship & STEM
STEM is the engine for creating the industries of tomorrow, while entrepreneurship is critical for harnessing technology and our economy to create the jobs of tomorrow. Providing wealth to a community and its people through innovation improves our standard of living.
Whether it’s extending bar hours or changing policy to encouraging citizens to get involved on local issues, we have a voice with lawmakers and advocate for issues that affect us.
