Dr. Ameena Matthews recognizes that a community of purpose is a community of people who are going through the same process or are trying to achieve a similar objective. A strong community can give us opportunities to connect with people, to reach for our goals, and makes us feel safe and secure. It’s important for every person to have a sense of community. Equality and fairness matter. A society that is fair and equal also helps improve all other public value outcomes. Ameena realizes that once people feel socially connected to their community and are able to participate in social economic and educational activities.
