Purpose: To advance deliberative democracy and improve the quality of public life in the United States

Established in 1990, the Study Circles Resource Center (SCRC) is a project of the Topsfield Foundation, Inc., a nonprofit, nonpartisan foundation dedicated to advancing deliberative democracy and improving the quality of public life in the United States. SCRC carries out its mission by helping communities use study circles--small group, democratic, highly participatory discussions--to involve large numbers of citizens in public dialogue and problem solving on critical issues such as race, education, crime and youth issues. SCRC is working with many cities and towns across the country that are organizing community-wide study circle programs on race relations. More information on study circles can be obtained at:
