On October 10th we were very happy to share in celebrating the Nonprofit Roundtable's 10th Anniversary at the Kellogg Center at Gallaudet University.

On Wednesday, October 10th one of CEDC's closest partners, the Nonprofit Roundtable of Greater Washington had their tenth anniversary celebration. Held at the Kellogg Conference Center on the campus of Gallaudet University and attended by many of the best and brightest from the nonprofit sector in the DC region it was clearly evident the power and reach that this great organization has.
We wanted to pull out a few items to highlight from our nonprofit events calendar. We'll be hosting two CiviCRM events in June: an administrative training and a dev code sprint, both run and managed by the CiviCRM team.
Over the last month or so, the CEDC has been posting images taken by Sr. Kit Collins, in commemoration of the second anniversary of her passing on March 18, 2010. One of the things that Kit and other members of the Washington area RSCJ were very passionate about was taking part in protests in the name of social justice and peace. The pictures on this page were taken by Sr.

Two years ago this month, CEDC lost its foundress and Executive Director, Sister Kit Collins. To say Kit was at the heart of what CEDC does is a vast understatement. Her vision for social justice and her mission ethos were incorporated into CEDC from our beginning and continue to inspire us in our work as we partner with organizations that are working to transform the world, seeking solidarity and justice in the environment, education, immigration, children and youth issues, peace, and more.
If you've been trying to "Like" links or other posts from a nonprofit Facebook page that you are an administrator, you may have experienced the way that Facebook treats those "Likes" as though they come from the page instead of from your personal account. Fortunately the fix is quite simple.
The CEDC is proud to partner with the Center of Concern, and joins them in celebration of their 40th anniversary of working for the causes of justice and peace in the world. Established in the Washington, D.C. neighborhood of Brookland where the CEDC is located, the two "Centers" have been partners since our inception in 1984. The impact the Center of Concern has been able to have for social justice around the world has been monumental.
