Organizing for the Common Good
The need for community action is growing. People and communities are confronted with a number of challenges. There is a lack of affordable housing. Water availability for drinking, commerce, and agriculture is inadequate in many communities. Climate change, poor management, adn misuse threaten forests. Powerful corporations and institutions misuse land, air, and water resources with devastating impacts on our communities and nature. Many people and communities are/or have been the victims of bigotry, prejudice, and racism. There are too few employment and economic opportunities to ensure that every person that wants to work has access to a career that provides a secure living income, healthcare, and a decent pension upon retirement age.
Catalyst for community action.
To address the challenges, concerned individuals continue to come together—sometimes as nonprofit organizations with staff and governance boards, sometimes as sometimes simply as volunteers willing to put their collective minds on the problem and their shoulders to the wheel. Like all grassroots groups, they struggle for resources, recognition, and people. GRI Infrastructure
