Accelerate Lansing is a non-partisan, grass-roots organization committed to accelerating civic engagement, urban revitalization, neighborhood empowerment, and cultural enrichment in the Greater Lansing. Through our commitment in these areas, Accelerate Lansing will strive to attract and infuse students, recent graduates and talented professionals in our region, while pursuing projects that ensure the future vibrancy and prosperity of the Lansing community.
No one person or group alone is going to bring about the Lansing that we all know is possible, and the more individuals and organizations working to accelerate Lansing in a positive direction, the better. Collaboration throughout the region will allow our community to pursue a shared vision of a better, more prosperous future. Accelerate Lansing is committed to working productively with any and all that share this vision.
Accelerate Lansing’s members are engaged residents committed to making Lansing a more positive and attractive community. As a member of Accelerate Lansing, it does not matter whether your stay in Lansing will be for several months or many years – what we value is that during your time in this community, you do all you can to leave it better than when you found it.
Our region is at a crossroads and faces many challenges on the horizon. We must not rely only on our leaders – we must empower ourselves. It is by necessity that we not only utilize ideas from other communities, but export our own unique brand of creativity. We encourage every member of Accelerate Lansing to bring forth ideas, whether familiar or untested, that will make Lansing a more attractive and prosperous community.
