The Study Circles Resource Center is now "Everyday Democracy"!

Everyday Democracy logoI just received word that the Study Circles Resource Center – one of the most respected organizations in the field – is now officially called Everyday Democracy. SCRC’s new name better reflects their ultimate goal: communities that work better for everyone, every day.

Everyday Democracy will continue to help communities bring all kinds of people together to solve community problems. And, they will keep on learning, developing tools, and identifying best practices for creating communities that work for everyone. Check out their great new look at www.everyday-democracy.org.

Here’s an updated blurb for your own websites’ links pages:

Everyday Democracy (formerly called the Study Circles Resource Center) is a national organization that helps communities find ways for all kinds of people to think, talk and work together to solve problems. We work with neighborhoods, cities and towns, regions, and states, helping them pay particular attention to how racism and ethnic differences affect the problems they address. Created in 1989 by The Paul J. Aicher Foundation, Everyday Democracy has worked with more than 550 communities nationwide on many different public issues.

Also – note that registration opens this Friday for Everyday Democracy’s 2008 national conference, “Making Every Voice Matter.” The conference will take place June 12-14 in Denver, Colorado.
