  19. What will it take to spread improvements and reach New York’s diverse communities? • Change will not happen on the scale needed unless there is collaboration and alignment of priorities across stakeholder groups. • There must be some awareness that the stakeholders are more likely to achieve the goal by working together than individually. • “Americans are a peculiar people. If in a local community a citizen becomes aware of a human need that is not met…suddenly a committee comes into existence…and a new community function is established. It is like watching a miracle.” de Tocqueville, 1840
