Here are some organizations, non-profits, and groups we are happy to see. They're working toward a new society and providing practical alternatives to our current social ills.

Resilient Communities Project

Food Not Bombs
"We believe that charity fails to address the causes of hunger and poverty, and attempts to band-aid the crisis without challenging the institutional structures that create inequality. We attempt to confront and dismantle the power structures of patriarchy, white supremacy, and other forms of domination--in society, in our organizations, and in our own consciousness."
- Chris Crass, FNB

"Food Not Bombs protests a system which fails to give people basic necessities in life."
- Howard Zinn, in the Worcester Phoenix

The New Road Map Foundation

Center for a New American Dream

The People-Centered Development Forum

Center for the Study of Democratic Societies

"Beware the barrenness of a busy life."
- Socrates

Fuller's Law: "You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete."

"A society that gives to one class all the opportunities for leisure and to another all the burdens of work condemns both classes to spiritual sterility."
- Lewis Mumford

"Women work under a no-win paradox: We need our work to be fully realized as women but in order to do the work we have to silence a good deal of ourselves."
- Elizabeth Perle McKenna
