Inspired by 50th anniversary of the North Shore Summer Project, the grassroots fair housing campaign of thousands that brought Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to Winnetka in 1965, Gail led Open Communities to pull together people from all of its previous campaigns, people it has served through its other programs, and partner organizations to create a new social justice movement for the 21st Century. The Justice Project: The March Continues shaped 19 Principles of the Welcoming Community as a framework for advocacy and is now moving to create grassroots “Justice Teams” in all suburbs.
