Justice from Within: The Death Penalty and a New Vision for Criminal Justice through a Racial Justice Lens

For too long, US criminal justice has been based on retribution, with the death penalty set forth as the ultimate punishment. Not only has this system failed to promote public safety, it results in persistent racial bias. A new paradigm based on restorative justice that can heal communities, especially communities of color, is desperately needed.

Why Are We Having Conversations without Them?

“We failed to fully grasp that the group assembled in that room could not sustainably solve the problem of food insecurity for the communities we sought to assist. We could only project our limited secondary experiences and monolithic views onto a diverse and constantly evolving issue.”

Dangerous Bill in Congress must be Stopped

The Issue:

Congress is in the finals stages of passing major tax legislation, H.R. 1, that has serious negative implications for older adults and aging services providers. We are opposed to its passage. We urge Congress to defeat this legislation and find better solutions for older Americans.

Neighborhoods: What is Working

When Disaster Hits, Your First Responder Probably Will Not Be a First Responder

The FIRST assets in a disaster are neighbors. In fact, it turns out that while your neighbors have everything to do with your immediate chances in a disaster, your neighbors and their collective extended connections determine how well and how fast your community will recover.

Organizational Culture of Fear: The Shadow Side of US Culture

Don't let the title mislead you. Peter's intimate conversation with life, career and business coach CJ Liu is profound, touching and funny. Ostensibly a discussion of Peter's book Flawless Consulting, CJ says at the end, "We didn't talk about the book at all." Instead, the conversation ranged from personal transformation, integrating who you are with what you do and outlets for pain and rage to freedom, authenticity, courage and the power of co-creation--plus yoga, cartoons, parenting and much more.

The Problem With Problems

One of the reasons we may have so little productive citizen creativity at the local level is that people buy into the belief that the purpose of getting together is to deal with a problem. There is another purpose that is probably more important: engagement that mobilizes citizen creativity and contributions.
