Welcome to the Global Journal of Community Psychology Practice (GJCPP). This is the first issue that I’m serving as the lead editor for GJCPP. I’m very encouraged and excited about this opportunity and playing a small role in promoting the practice of community psychology. I’ve also quickly gained a new level of appreciation for Vince Francisco and the tremendous effort of developing GJCPP over the past several years. Please take a moment to send him a “thank you” for his service. I hope GJCPP will continue to build on the strong foundation that has been developed. I’m sure you’ll agree that the following articles do just that!
