Temple Kol Emeth in Marietta. 

The Children's Interfaith Movement works with faith based and community organizations in supporting the children who live on the margins in our communities. Pamela Perkins Carn explains that ICM advocates on behalf of Georgia's children at the policy and at the services levels.

The Local Take speaks with Charisse Price about the history of the National Urban Fellows (NUF).  Ms. Price is a member of the fellows class of 2011. She speaks about the history of the program which began in the late 1960's at the height of the Civil Rights Movement. Urban centers across the country struggled to support citizens of color and underserved communities.  The fellows programs was born out of a desire to train leaders with an interest in public policy, governmental affairs and non-profit organizations.
