Detailed Description

One of the goals of CIDI is to not only educate, but to also be educated.  CIDI aims to step foot in as many places of worship as possible in Rochester and beyond.  The purpose is to observe the practices of others for better understanding of our neighbors.   CIDI will demonstrate the true tolerance of Islam and encourage all those of faith to take pride in their beliefs.  We hopes to be welcomed at your place of worship or spirituality!

The Arabic word in the Qur’an taqwa means "God-consciousness".  This concept of taqwa is also embedded in other traditions.  Enabling a positive and respectful mentality can exist through a remembrance of a higher power and being accountable for our actions.  CIDI hopes to explore how our common notion of taqwa can keep the doors of dialogue open.

Every CIDI Bridges stop is coordinated ahead of time with each place of worship.

Site Information
Beam
  • For the commercial sector, we tend to register startup activities (new companies and new commercial projects) that bring diversification and high-impact opportunities to the area.
  • For the non-profit sector, we wish to shine light on all the organizations and services that otherwise labor under relative obscurity.
  • Our hope is that dmcbeam.org will encourage cross-sector collaborations and creative solutions.

While there are a number of registries in the community, dmcbeam.org's  distinct value is to pilot a database with a data structure and categorizations that answer the questions such as: What organizations or projects/programs in our community that have purported relevance with some of the over-arching focuses put forward by initiatives such as DMC, J2G and Health Improvements?

This database could be used as one of the ways to explore the capacities of the community. If you are someone on an exploratory journey to learn about the greater Rochester community. dmcbeam.org could be an interesting first step.

Definitions
The following defines the various project phases:
  1. Available - a product, program or service is in production
  2. Develop - program or application is being developed
  3. Plan - idea is solid, stakeholders are identified, and there is strong commitment to go forward from all parties.
  4. Concept Phase - idea scoped out with enough details to give an early sizing and/or to build a proof of concept
    demonstration
  5. Pre-concept Phase - an early idea or a requirement.
