Last year Jim Diers posted a thoughtful reflection on the work of advancing social justice and the limits of ABCD in that work. This got a lot of us talking about ABCD, systems change and social justice.  The board of the ABCD Institute has subsequently drafted a values statement stating social justice as an inherent part of true ABCD work.  As this was happening Indigo Bishop and I wrote a little article for ShelterForce sharing our experience and perspective on the matter.  I would love to hear folks' thoughts!
