Here are some interesting articles about citizen and community centered approaches to social change and progress.

  • Todd Heywood’s post, “Fighting HIV Stigma,” about how people are using t-shirts to fight and understand the stigma associated with HIV;
  • Bill Taylor’s HBR article, “How One Company’s Turnaround Came From the Heart,” about how a kidney dialysis company recovered from being on the verge of bankruptcy by adopting a “community first and company second” attitude;
  • Paul Gorski’s “The Myth of the ‘Culture of Poverty’,” which discusses the tragic effects of classism in America’s public schools and argues for change (helpful solutions for educators included).
