The heart beat of social change and justice is in the local work. What we do in our families, our neighborhoods, schools, cities and towns, brings purpose to life.

  • Today we hear from two local projects, and consider their current and critical questions.

  • What is the purpose, goal and objective?   How do you know there is progress?

  • What are the benefits along the way?
