Inequality Research - has greatest impact where wealth gap is greatest

As people around the world celebrate Easter and Passover, an Equality Trust report on "the gap between the rich and the rest of us" came across my desk. I encourage you to read it and share with friends, family and co-workers, along with members of your faith network.

I support volunteer-based tutor/mentor programs because of their potential to help people from different economic, social, racial and age groups connect and form bonds with each other. For such programs to be more available in cities like Chicago, and better organized, more people need to take on intermediary roles, that connect people and resources from their own networks with programs operating in different neighborhoods defined by poverty, poorly performing schools, high rates of violence, etc.
