Building a Community of Belonging 2012

The Arcadia Institute is excited to be organizing the third annual Building a Community of Belonging Forum to Kalamazoo. Together, with our partners, The Kalamazoo Nature Center, the Southwest Michigan Council of Boy Scouts, the YMCA of Greater Kalamazoo, The Boys and Girls Club of Greater Kalamazoo, and the Portage District Library, we are welcoming John McKnight to facilitate our event.  John McKnight is the co-author of "The Abundant Community: Awakening the Power of Families and Neighborhoods" and co-director of the Asset-Based Community Development Institute as well as a well-known community organizer who has worked for many years on issues of social service delivery systems, health policy, the inclusion of marginalized people and institutionalized racism.
