2. Disseminating innovative work of community partners that others can learn from and build on;
3. Engaging in constructive dialogue between community partners and key stakeholders in academic, government and philanthropic sectors to foster mutual understanding and supportive action; and
4. Growing and deepening a national network of community partners that facilitates professional development and has a significant voice in decisions about research practice and policy.
