Center Gaining Attention

April saw the first mainstream press attention about the Syracuse Center for Peace and Social Justice. Ironically, the Post-Standard and Syracuse New Times each ran stories on April 11, both of which were unsolicited. So we're not the only ones who see the newsworthy nature of this ambitious project.

The Center Board - Kanat Bolazar, Sam Feld, Karen Hall, Nick Poulos, Eileen Schell and Ann Tiffany - are hard at work preparing for the creation of the Center in the coming months. Grant applications have been submitted for funding to four local foundations, in addition to the continuation of individual solicitations. Price quotes are being gathered for construction of the elevator and for other renovation work. A thorough energy audit was conducted to assist in the development of "green" building improvements. not the only ones who see the newsworthy nature of this ambitious project.

The Center also became a member of the Non-Profit Centers Network, a national network which provides education and resources for the creation and operation of quality nonprofit office and program space. not the only ones who see the newsworthy nature of this ambitious project.

Donations and offers of assistance are still needed. Send Donations (checks to Syracuse Center for Peace and Social Justice, or to be tax-deductible to AJ Muste Institute) to 340 Midland Ave., Syracuse, NY 13202. To learn more, see www.syracusecenter.org or call Ann at 478-4571.
