The Arcadia Institute, the Kalamazoo Nature Center, the Portage District Library, the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Kalamazoo, the YMCA of Greater Kalamazoo, and the Southwest Michigan Council of Boy Scouts are pleased to host the third annual Building a Community of Belonging Forum: A Forum of the Arcadia Institute and Its Community Partners.

The Forum is Thursday, March 15 from 9 am - 4pm. The purpose of the Forum is:

  • To increase opportunities for people with disabilities to participate in community activities with people who do not have disabilities.
  • To develop a community map to strengthen our whole community through expanded opportunities for individuals with disabilities to participate in activities as they choose.
  • To broaden the concept of inclusion beyond the focus on individuals with disabilities as a mean to make Kalamazoo a community where all people belong.

Featuring John McKnight, co-author of: The Abundant Community: Awakening the Power of Families and Neighborhoods and co-director of the Asset-Based Community Development Institute.  John McKnight is a well-known community organizer and has worked for many years on issues of social service delivery systems, health policy, the inclusion of marginalized people and institutionalized racism.
