Working together to build a stronger community - now and forever

Neighborhoods: What is Working

Leadership Is a Process of Community

Martin Luther King, Jr. did not march for freedom and equality alone. He was the visionary voice for the collective effort of hundreds of thousands of people.When we deconstruct leadership, we will not find a hero at the heart of leadership. We will find community.

What to Do When the Door to the Status Quo Opens Slightly

There are times when you manage to open the door ever so slightly to the status quo -- organizations and institutions that have power and resources to back up their perspective and mandate. To make inroads you must walk through that door and engage with the very people you think are the cause of the problem.

Freeing Yourself from the Consumer Culture

Peter talks with Eric Zimmer, host and producer of The One You Feed, named one of the Best Health Podcasts of All Time by The Huffington Post. They discuss the four pillars of the free market ideology, our longing for perfection, how questions bring us together and answers alienate us . . . and much more.

To Solve Youth Homelessness, Talk to Young People

As a teenager, Da’Quan Wilson was homeless, sleeping in friends’ apartments, at relatives’ homes and even in a cemetery. Today, he works as a “Community Connector” with LISC Philadelphia partner People’s Emergency Center (PEC), reaching out to young people who may be undergoing the same sorts of challenges he once did. In our increasingly digital age, community connectors meet people face-to-face, to share information about resources, build neighborhood connection and invite community participation. Many become local leaders in the process.

One Day of Service Among 8,395 (that’s 23 years)—and Counting
