Dani Jackson founded non-profit, OnBuildingCommunity.org as a means to highlight individuals, organizations and methods of building local communities. Everything in this world has the potential to build or destroy community, OnBuildingCommunity recognizes how elements such as Food, Music, Film, Politics, Education, Employment and Self-Awareness inter-connectedly contribute to building community.
OnBuildingCommunity is more than a website it is a conduit that seeks to move from talking about community problems to actively taking part in the solutions.
Understanding that music is a catalyst for building community, Dani created Music Builds Community: Live Music. Hosted by Tim Jackson with the Just N Case Band, Music Builds Community provides people with a way to network and build authentic relationships around their love for music.
The On Building Community Book Club started with Dani Jackson and Albert Murphy having a simple phone conversation to 15 member and growing club in Chicago. The book club is a method of building community because it provides a way for people to learn together and from each other. We discuss each book as it relates to our lives and to the prosperity of our communities. In addition to Chicago, the book club discussions are also streamed online so that people across the globe can take part.
