Common Ground

Mission – n2E mission is to inspire the concept of environmental justice in all forms.  In so doing, we utilize a circular flow of resources to achieve sustainable community involvement that gets people talking and participating. Our civic engagement designs ensure that the interpretation and enforcement of programs, activities, and policies are understood by all and undertaken in a consistent manner to meet state and federal inclusivity guidelines.

Company Policy – Whether a public meeting, workshop or other community event, n2E can provide the tools necessary to bridge gaps between agencies working to improve quality of life and the communities who deserve to be active participants of the process.  Dispelling common myths about race and people of color are essential elements of the n2Etool chest.

Executive Profiles – n2Engagement, LLC, (formerly Virtual Office Associates, LLC.) provides sustainable public involvement solutions. Helping the client meet federal environmental justice guidelines in response to Executive Order 12898 became our signature product in 2005. Increasing the participation of minority stakeholders, using technology, strategic management tools, and cultural competence to empower people to make change.  The capacity to involve more citizens, who were least likely to participate in environmental, economic, political, and other social justice issues, is now available in Florida.
