The Center for Social Inclusion (CSI) believes that structural 
transformation depends
on leaders of color working effectively and collectively from the local

level.  We've played a role by supporting and engaging leaders through 
our Alston
Bannerman Fellowships and also through the trainings and strategy 
convenings we
develop and conduct.
Now, in our 10th anniversary year, we are taking a closer look at how to 
make our
work  with leaders even more supportive, strategic, and sustainable.

We're constantly learning from our work with leaders on the ground and 
we want to
ensure that CSI is playing the most constructive role it can.  We

our plans for 2013 and beyond.
In the meantime, we'd appreciate your help recruiting another 
outstanding class
of Alston Bannerman sabbatical fellows.

We thank you for your support as we continue to find "solutions that
