OneRouge: Coalitions Update

After the launch of the Coalitions, OneRouge has been taking steps to build a sturdy framework in which these very faceted focuses will function. The framework is centered around the shared aspirational statement:


Creating an inclusive community culture in our city that leads to equitable opportunity for all and demonstrates everyone's voice, beliefs, and experiences are valued.


Food Insecurity Coalition:


After the pilot year of FIC, supported immensely by Capital Area United Way, we have been working to improve the structure and impact of the coalition. Utilizing the Collaborative Impact Model 3.0, the OneRouge Coalition (ORC) leadership team has made great strides in creating a more effective and action-oriented framework for the work we look to accomplish together in 2022 and beyond.


To create this structure, ORC created a Community Leadership Council, made up of stakeholders and leaders (read more about this here) was formed in the fall of 2021. Within the Leadership Council, co-chairs for each of the first three ORC coalitions were selected.


For Food Insecurity, Jan Ross of the Huey & Angelina Wilson Foundation was named as the the FIC co-Chair. To represent the community stakeholders, Emily Chatelain and Dr. Caityln Scales of The Three O’Clock Project were named as co-chairs as well. With these important leaders in place, we are finalizing the FIC direction, goals, and tactics informed by last year’s Jamboard feedback sessions and pointing the collaborative work towards the ORC guiding aspirational statement.


 

Education Coalition:


Utilizing the Collaborative Impact Model 3.0, OneRouge has made major steps in creating a framework for the work we look to accomplish.


To create structure, OneRouge began its Leadership Council, made up of community stakeholders and interestholders in Winter ‘21 (Read more about that here). Within the Leadership Council, Co-chairs for the first three coalitions’ Steering Committees were determined.


For Education, Adonica Duggan of Baton Rouge Alliance for Students and Dustin LaFont of Front Yard Bikes were named as the first Steering Committee Co-Chairs. Together, with the team of Walls and MetroMorphosis, the Steering Committee will develop the overall size and scope of the Coalition, as well as pinpoint the areas of impact and tactics we want to identify from the onset.


The Education Coalition will convene in Q2 with a robust vision and purpose, baked with the Collective Impact Model 3.0 (see below) and the OneRouge Coalitions’ Aspirational Statement.

 

Transportation Coalition:


For Transportation, Reverend Alexis Anderson was named as the first Steering Committee Co-Chairs. Additional interest and stakeholders from CATS, BREC, and CRPC will join our planning with the team of Walls and MetroMorphosis, to develop the overall size and scope of the Coalition, as well as pinpoint the areas of impact and tactics we want to identify from the onset.


The Transportation Coalition will convene in Q2 with a robust vision and purpose, baked with the Collective Impact Model 3.0 (see below) and the OneRouge Coalitions’ Aspirational Statement.
