The Northside Compass Group is a community-first leadership group. The direction-setting group is comprised of 15-20 neighbors from across Northside. The Compass Group develops neighborhood strategy, guides our community landbank, and leads efforts to preserve the future of Northside.
The Northside Compass Group is integral to the Jackson Center’s model of community-first organizing. Community-first organizing is led by a bottom-up logic entrusted to those who know not only the history and culture of their neighborhoods but who have earned leadership and know policy in practice. In this process, the Northside Compass Group provides vital leadership and direction-setting that ensures the Jackson Center remains accountable to and responsive to community interests. The Jackson Center understands that our role is to facilitate and organize the full expression of community knowledge, wisdom, and vision.
