Blow Up the Box A Novel Approach to Rejuvenating a City: Alonzo Mitchell III at TEDxCLE 2014
Alonzo Mitchell III is the visionary, founder, and Managing Partner of Ohio Homecoming, a grassroots movement whose goals are to educate, unite, and organize the positive energies inside and outside of Cleveland to elevate the city to her rightful place among the world’s top towns. Alonzo is a “boomerang professional” — he was born, raised, educated, and cultivated in Cleveland, and later left to work near the nation’s capital. After years of soul searching, he returned to his home, excited to act on his passion for Northeast Ohio. Today, he leverages the skills he earned in the corporate world to create positive change within disenfranchised communities. To date, he has created several projects that are destined to change the way outsiders and Clevelanders view our town on Lake Erie, including: Cleveland’s birthday celebrations, days of service, the resurgence of New Year’s Eve on Public Square, and The Village Project — an innovative approach to Cleveland’s vacant property problem.
