Abstract: 

In this article, Michael McAfee and Mauricio Torre reflect on the successes and challenges of the Promise Neighborhoods movement as it works toward education equity, and on what it takes to effect large-scale, sustainable change for low-income communities and communities of color. Together they discuss the Chula Vista Promise Neighborhood project and illustrate how setting clear goals for collective impact and making sure local efforts get needed support can result in sustainable systemic change.
