In June 1969, Carl Stokes was one year into his term as the first black mayor of a major U.S. city when the Cuyahoga River caught fire. The 1969 fire was by no means the first fire on the river (at least 13 others were reported prior to that) or even the biggest (the largest fire cost more than $1 million in damage). But this fire landed Cleveland on the cover of Time magazine in an report on the nation's environmental problems.
The river fire capped a tough decade for Cleveland. While the Browns won the NFL championship in 1964, there was no Super Bowl. And, between 1960 and 1970, Cleveland lost more 100,000 people - representing over 14 percent of the population - to the surrounding suburbs.

chefs at the helm of many unique and upscale restaurants featuring locally
grown products, it's easy to a assume everyone shares in the bounty of our

When adoption processes and practices are ethical, parents and professionals are informed, and children are at the center, the extended family of adoption can be a model for a truly evolved definition of family. A lack of uniform laws, regulations and consistent standards, coupled with a lack of education, can leave everyone in the extended family of adoption unprepared and vulnerable, including children, parents and professionals. After decades of research, passionate advocacy and practical experiences - why haven’t policies and practices on behalf of children and families moved far enough and fast enough?
Join us for a conversation with April Dinwoodie, Chief Executive of The Donaldson Adoption Institute, Inc. and a transracially-adopted person, as she explores how a modern understanding of adoption, more education, and collective action can ultimately strengthen all families.

of which candidate prevails on November 8, the next President of the United
States (U.S.) will inherit a complicated international landscape and mounting
global problems. The Syrian civil war shows no signs of ending, with a U.S.
brokered cease-fire having recently failed and ISIS continuing attacks in
the Middle East and around the globe. The
United Kingdom will begin Brexit talks with the European Union in early 2017,
testing the strength of both a key ally and stability of a key trade partner. Meanwhile, the U.S. relationships with China and
Russia continue to betray tensions, as the Chinese military expands and Putin's
ambitions grow. And while Latin
America is dealing with the fallout from the end of its commodities fueled
boom, migration out of the African continent continues unabated.
