FoCA is in the middle of its Annual Appeal and we wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who has supported us to date and to ask those of you who have supported us in the past, or are potential new supporters, to consider donating to this year's Annual Appeal. http://www.friendsofchesterarthur.org/take-action/ FoCA has set an ambitious goal of raising $20,000 between now and the end of the year, and we need your help to reach that goal! Almost 100% of the funding we raise is invested back into the school to support innovative programming, updates to technology, educational materials, classroom supplies and more - we can't do it without the community supporting our work and so we ask that you please consider donating to FoCA as part of your year-end giving!

International Human Rights Day was established by the United Nations on this day in 1948 to commemorate the anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. This year, Human Rights Day calls on everyone to stand up for someone's rights! Disrespect for basic human rights continues to be wide-spread in all parts of the globe. Extremist movements subject people to horrific violence. Messages of intolerance and hatred prey on our fears. Humane values are under attack. We must reaffirm our common humanity. Wherever we are, we can make a real difference. In the street, in school, at work, in public transport; in the voting booth, on social media.

Hear UCD president Matt Bergheiser discuss how our West Philadelphia Skills Initiative takes a unique approach to combating poverty in the latest episode of The Pew Charitable Trusts podcast "After the Fact:"

    Poverty and Connecting to Opportunity in Philadelphia
    Poverty is one of Philadelphia's most enduring problems. The city's poverty rate is 25.7 percent-the highest among the United States' 10 largest cities. That means that about 400,000 city residents, including more than a third of the city's children, live in a household with an annual income of $19,337 or less.
