We are human: we all feel, we all have real beating hearts, we all need nourishment, we all need care, we all matter. On what grounds do any of us dare to presume who is “worthy” and who is not? And once we've recognized each others' intrinsic value, how can we continue to support an economic system that thrives on exploitation and inequality? And how can we not question a political system that calls itself 'democracy' and yet is so entwined with such inhumane economics?
We know our lives are fundamentally interconnected with other humans and with the natural world that generously serves as our life support system. How can we not see the insanity in continuing to harm each other and our planet?
The few have constructed many systems, structures & institutions, and now we, the many, are awakening to collectively reclaim them and re-imagine them in the spirit of basic human decency.
We are a beautiful multitude, with wide-ranging concerns, united in our compassion, our creativity, our commitment, and our spirit of cooperation.
This movement, this moment, is a call to conscience. WE KNOW BETTER, so how can we not DO better? With what excuses can we continue with such unfairness?
We speak from the heart and we celebrate our collective courage, imagination, and power! We are truly all in this together.
In that spirit, all are invited to participate this weekend:
