As a long time member, I have to whole-heartedly agree with JCadice. Those criticisms have all been created and supported by a single person (who I will not name) over the past few months who I also think wrote the review. That being said, I know the Thomas Merton Center has gone through some very tough times, but what nonprofit hasn't. In fact, every hard working person has had a tough time during this recession. And that's why the work that the TMC does is so important. It fights for those hard working people and for their rights. Their new focus on Economic Justice has been a powerful message for me and has strengthened my support for it. I do hope it continues to add projects because it's important to remember that the TMC can always improve.
