Now available - The Journal of Community Power Building- Volume IV

In this fourth edition of The Journal of Community Power Building, the
writers explore the definitions of community and community boundaries:
who are the people with whom CDCs work? When a CDC carries out
leadership development or speaks of pursuing justice, who does it
involve in its action plans? Who perhaps is excluded from its outreach?

With each edition of the Power Journal, we are collecting stories about
community development "from the field." They are written

by CDC staff, board members, leaders and program participants and they
document successes, reflections, and frustrations.

Power-building and organizing are long-term commitments as CDCs and
their members need coalitions that include neighbors,

elected officials, and other local organizations in order to build the
political strength needed to address community issues. We

hope that over time, the Power Journal will become a critical reservoir
of field observations about the community development field.

*complementary* copy.

A PDF version is also available on line at but the printed bound
journal is a must have!
