Community Mediation, Inc., took the lead on a city-wide effort aimed to create a “culture of dialogue,” neighborhood by neighborhood in New Haven, Conn. They hoped to generate a sense of shared ownership and accountability among New Haven residents. Action teams from these dialogues focus on a variety of issues including building relations between neighborhoods, improving literacy of immigrant populations, and listening to the concerns of youth.
New Haven was one of eight communities that took part in "Communities Creating Racial Equity," an initiative by Everyday Democracy to help communities deepen and sustain community change on issues around racial equity.
