For the 2014 Association of Collegiate Schools of Planning (ACSP) conference's poster session, I created a poster exploring the unique context of Rio Grande Valley (RGV) colonias that generates its powerful civil society. Viewed as the "first phase" of the research, the graphics distilled basic information concerning RGV civil organizations (be they nonprofit organizations (NPOs), community development corporations (CDCs), or grassroots organizations (GROs)).
