Circling Up Intergenerationally with the Mayor The Elders asked for a series of intergenerational circles with Evanston youth who similarly participated in circle trainings with the Moran Center. At the same time, Mayor Daniel Biss reached out to the Moran Center asking about holding community circles exploring issues of community building and safety. Put it all together and in September we held intergenerational community circles, with Mayor Biss, introducing restorative practices, building relationships, and sharing stories and experiences around safety and building our Beloved Community.
