What are the environmental, economic and political factors surrounding this controversial topic?

Leadership Triangle On the Street

Goodmon Fellows value community and volunteerism.  Therefore, group volunteer projects like working on a Habitat home will be arranged to provide more opportunities to give back and to spend quality time with other Fellows.  Thursday August 22, we enjoyed the Durham Premiere of Bringing It Home, with our Goodmon Fellow and filmaker Linda Booker.  We gathered at the Full Frame Theater at the American Tobacco Power Plant. The screening was enjoyed by all. We are partnering with the Durham Rescue Mission for our spring event on April 26, 2014.
