The power of the group and power of “groups of groups” are among the driving forces behind the Posse Foundation’s success. As NCDP launched our SHOREline youth empowerment project we looked to the Posse Foundation for inspiration and direction. NCDP Deputy Director David Abramson introduces the plenary lecture on the “Power of the Posse” delivered by MacArthur Genius award-winner Debbie Bial at the SHOREline Kick-Off Summit in Long Beach, Mississippi on October 19, 2013. Dr. Bial is joined by several of her Posse alumnae as they describe the themes that link Posse and SHOREline.
