Lewis canvassed the South Shore community with volunteers in 2018 and 2019 to ask South Shore residents what they needed to thrive, what they thought the community needed and what they wanted the community to look like. Hundreds of voices were heard. The information collected was then organized into the following categories: environmental/infrastructure, safety, education, leisure, youth development, economic opportunity, housing, health, politics and spirituality/humanitarianism. The data was processed with the guidance of sociology faculty at the University of Pennsylvania.
