10 Years of Connecting People, Ideas, & Action

In 2021, we celebrate our 10th Anniversary.  The digital celebration book below takes a look at the people who have strengthened networks and relationships, the ideas sparked and actions fueled during that time — and what awaits us as we gather ground in the years to come!

“Last night I didn’t sleep because I was thinking about this [model of bringing people together]. With the New Jim Crow Project [focusing on mass incarceration] we have to plan events and programs all the time and suddenly I’m thinking that more people have to have conversations: I don’t have to have a keynote speaker, I have to create the kinds of programs that have people talking with each other and thinking about action steps. So it’s really changing the model for us about the way we’re going to do our communicating and programs and raising the level of self-awareness in education.”
