NIMBY is an acronym that stands for “Not In My Back Yard.” It’s what happens when a community (or even just an individual) puts up resistance to something coming into that community (for example, a prison). In this first of a two-part feature, you will meet Juliet Dorris-Williams, Executive Director of The PEER Center, a peer-run, drop-in facility in Columbus, Ohio. After providing much-needed services for quite some time, the Center was suddenly challenged by some members of the community who felt it was an undesirable element. This ultimately led to the Center relocating. Juliet shares the story of this year-long fight.
