Awhile back, I read an interesting article entitled "When Dollars Call for Change" by Emma Dumain on Congress.org. Ms. Dumain chronicles how activists and activist groups have been using dollar bills as inexpensive and effective means to get their message out to the public.

As many of you know, Lynn was struck by a life-changing stroke last year.
Because this event took both a physical and financial toll on her, she is now forced to sell her cherished home and her belongings to pay the bills. For everyone whose life has been touched by Lynn McMullen: It’s your chance to give back! Over 60 donors have contributed over $11,000 to help.…Continue

Today, the members of our non profit group, the Order of Mercy, held a neighborhood street clean up as we have done several times in the past two years. People who live in the area joined in when they saw us, picking up trash and sweeping away broken glass. We also met some members of a spiritual group who had just moved in and were giving a concert this evening. It was wonderful to meet people who care about keeping our streets clean, safe and loved (we live on the edge of a notoriously… Continue

A few of us volunteers from the Obama campaign decided to stay together and form a county-wide Peace Alliance group in our rural midwestern community.

During…Continue

Networks like FB allow one to click on "Like" or make a comment, but it really doesn't do anything to further one's activism. The word activism is about "Taking action". We've come a long way from the days of marching in the streets about Vietnam and Civil Rights...we just click a button that suggests we're righteously indignant about something...and don't do much about it. With CHALK4PEACE the global chalk art project for peace, we have tried to contact people directly, at least through a… Continue

I just finished reading an interesting (IMHO) article from Paul Loeb (author of "The Soul of the Citizen") on Huffington Post about the importance of personal contact when trying to elicit support for an important issue. (Read the full article here.) Mr. Loeb points out how easy it has become for us to sign an online petition and feel as though we have accomplished some great democratic feat. Or how a… Continue
