What does it mean for local communities to imagine and effect their own "transformation"? Don Anderson's concept of the "Assembly" has been around for almost half a century, but it remains a powerful model for effective grassroots action from the ground up. His work and the improvements it brought to the lives of real people have never been more relevant than they are today. We offer his words as an exemplar of Public Kinship thinking. . . and DOING.
Tell us what you think!!!
