When majority becomes minority
When US Secretary of State John Kerry met with Egypt’s leaders he noted that the road to democracy is long: "I say with both humility and with a great deal of respect, that getting there requires a genuine give-and-take among Egypt's political leaders and civil society groups, just as we are continuing to struggle with that in our own country."
Three neighborhoods - one community?
Three distinct neighborhoods, adjacent to each other, with distrust between them based on historical events – could they become one community that honors their distinct boundaries? Hope in the Cities was invited by the Neighborhood Resource Center to lead a process for residents of the three neighborhoods.

Introducing the CSP class of 2013
We are pleased to introduce the 2013 class of Caux Scholars. We will be posting each of their bios in the coming weeks. We know you will be excited by the outstanding quality of this class. However, many of them are looking for financial assistance to actually get there so we ask you to please consider helping build the scholarship funds needed for the 2013 program.

Not a head thing but a heart thing
Rev. Sylvester “Tee” Turner, director of reconciliation programs with IofC, was the guest speaker at a Celebration of Emancipation and Recommitment to Reconciliation at Little Fork Episcopal Church in rural Rixeyville, VA, on February 23. The church, built in 1776, was a focus of activity by both North and South during the Civil War, and members wanted it to play a part in increasing trust and understanding across divides in the community today.
What do we take away from Black History Month?
"We had separate water fountains, bathrooms and bus seats. But Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King fixed things." Frankie once said that in class but he wasn't the first and won't be the last. Schools often scratch the surface of civil rights, teaching the same few stories, about the same few famed people.
