Hello everyone,

From the book Thank You for Being Late by Thomas Friedman.

She also knows that that fixing will not be transformative unless the area’s largely African American families take their future into their own hands as well. The good news, lost in the headlines, is that there are many signs that is happening with the families in the NAZ, she argued:
What makes me most hopeful is the ownership that African Americans in this community are taking—[their realization] that nobody is coming to save us. Partners are critical but we have to save ourselves—we have to change our community ourselves.

Does the bolded phrase mean the responsibility (for themselves) they are assuming/taking?

Thank you.
