Today’s landscape has become extremely volatile. Our country has found it difficult to live up to the words of the pledge–indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. Instead division has reared its head in a bold way that we have not seen in years. More than ever before, we need a unified process that functions through a diversified group conscious. We need solutions that are truly of the people for people–not just a few.
The organization of people for a common cause is the backbone of America. Efforts such as union development, protests, boycotts, and voting, don’t have the significant intended impact without people dedicated to the underlying cause working through the spirit of volunteerism.
Let’s make a difference together!
It is our desire to organize inclusive-minded individuals for the purpose of developing and implementing strategies designed at healing our nation and ridding it of racist indonctrinations that foster hatred and division. Volunteering is a powerful mechanism that can provide both, an outlet for dialogue and a platform for action. It has a magnetism that draws individuals and organizations together for an established common cause like no other tool. Just think, Our current entire military force is based upon the spirit of volunteering. Of course soldiers receive pay, deservedly so, nonetheless, they sign up based upon their passion to serve.
