To make Chautauqua County a place where everyone belongs and has opportunities to thrive, especially those who have been historically marginalized.

The Chautauqua County I.D.E.A. Coalition is designed to address, prioritize, and give voice to concerns of those individuals that have been historically marginalized and directly impacted by such things as racism and social injustice in our community. It serves as a bridge between impacted populations and the various organizations that provide services within Chautauqua County. It is also committed to both anti-racist and broad social justice work.



  • Engage historically marginalized populations and identify barriers and concerns related to belonging and thriving.

  • Prioritize issues/themes that emerge from those direct conversations.

  • Create space for collaboration and collective work across organizations and those directly impacted to help address identified barriers and concerns.

Strategic Outcomes:

  • Community organizations and agencies equipped to better serve all residents.

  • Community members engaged to ensure accountability.

  • Community-based initiatives designed and implemented to sustain desired outcomes.

  • Businesses and Corporations engaged to contribute to positive social impact.
