It is crucial that we each help our society to become more fully inclusive for all of us today, and to come and work together, for all of us, right?
I believe that attention to shared histories, as in DC, may provide part of an answer. I started a note about that, a few years ago, in my book Stayed on Freedom’s Call:
“In Washington, D.C., The Time Dollar Youth Court (TDYC) provides alternative youth peer sentencing to first-time juvenile offenders in the District of Columbia, providing a constructive means of instilling respect and responsibility for self and others. The recidivism rate for Youth Court participants is 9% for those who successfully completed the Youth Court Diversion Program (as opposed to 30% for those in the D.C. area who were not referred to Youth Court). ”
In forming the RJI, Dr. Cahn again inspired cooperation, building effective and caring structures that effect real change for the youth of our society. Next we look at ongoing community-based initiatives.
So, it turns out that I might have needed to explain a bit more about DC, and the various incarnations of the DC Time Bank.

Stayed on Freedom’s Call
includes two ‘imagination-rich’ walking tours, with songs, of Washington, DC. New interviews and research are woven into stories of old struggles shared by both the Jewish and African-American communities in the capital city.
Shared histories are explored from a new perspective of cultural parallels and parallel institution-building which brought the two communities together culturally and historically.
