Los Angeles-area agency and nonprofit leaders take part in a sample dialogue as part of an Everyday Democracy orientation in 2007.
“After study circles, some young people who participated in the program began talking with the town’s park board about the development of the basketball court. These young people are now working with adults in the community to sketch out plans for a new basketball court and skate board park."
—Donnavee Schneider, Mott, N.D.
“After the first (dialogue) session, I knew then that I had to do something to try to help bring some changes to the community and to help educate people about racism and the effects that it causes.”
—Wardell Ashford, Fond du Lac, Wis.
“Study circles helped us to communicate better, speak out, and let us know that other people want the same things for our community. If you really want to change the community, you need to start it.”
—Keishla Torres, Bethlehem, Pa.

"We have named Everyday Democracy in our will, because we want to support the continuation of their important work. Many communities, in every region of the country, are stronger because of the advice and assistance they’ve received from the Everyday Democracy staff. We know we are making a gift toward creating a stronger democracy.”—Heinz and Virginia Herrmann, Storrs Mansfield, Conn.
Heinz Herrmann was professor of molecular and cell biology at the University of Connecticut until 1980.
