About the Author

Jim Diers is the liaison to Seattle communities for the University of Washington Office of Partnerships, director of the South Downtown Foundation, and on the faculties of the UW Department of Architecture and the Asset-Based Community Development Institute.


"Jim Diers was the Pied Piper for the Seattle neighborhood movement which built a national and international reputation for its new approach to planning, giving real meaning to the slogan, 'Power to the People.' In describing the potential for this approach to revitalize our cities, his writing is a must-read for citizen activists, urban planners, and elected officials."--Paul Schell, former Mayor of Seattle "A very readable account which touches on many of the major challenges facing every city in the country."--John P. Kretzmann, co-author of Building Communities from Inside Out
