This call to action from AAM's Museums and Community Initiative challenges museums to pursue their potential as active, visible players in community life. An opening essay urges museums to reinvigorate their civic role and purposes and offers guideposts for inquiry and transformation. Other essays and reflections - from museum professionals and community practitioners - offer food for thought on the complex process of changing the terms of engagement between communities and museums.
