If you are wondering about my week:

  1. I felt icky about Pallotta’s TED talk on increasing nonprofit overhead.  I understand innovation, but I also know how important our causes are, so how important it is to be good stewards of our finances.
  2. I cried reading about the father-daughter dance that took place at Richmond City Jail.  It really restored my faith in humanity.

I also found the below articles interesting.

SPECIAL TOPICS:

  1. Starting a career at a reproductive justice social worker
  2. Social work and liberalism 

Poverty:

  3. Can home visiting alleviate poverty?

  2. Smart, low-income students are applying the the wrong colleges
