Abstract:
The Rev. Linda Jordan and Rev. Mahan Siler are winners of the 1992 Independent Citizen Awards. Jordan’s and Siler’s Triangle area churches are the first to directly challenge the South Baptist Convention’s declaration against homosexuality. The two pastors practice tolerance, but have received backlash for their efforts. Congregation members have left; each pastor’s church has been expelled from the Southern Baptist Convention and the NC Baptist State Convention; and a campaign of hate has begun against the pastors and their churches.

Abstract:
The NC Community Land Trustees are winners of a 1992 Independent Citizen Award. The group has been promoting a new model of home ownership in Durham’s neglected West End neighborhood. The group buys run-down houses and rehabilitates them with volunteer labor and the prospective owners help. Then, using low-interest loans, the new residents buy their homes while the Land trust keeps the title to the land beneath them. When the residents move, they sell their house back to the organization, making home ownership affordable for low-income families.
