“Action is the Antidote to Despair”

This Joan Baez quote is our daily mantra reminding us that every action, no matter the size, makes a difference when trying to effect change in our communities and beyond. But it also reminds us that when we’re feeling completely overwhelmed with a never-ending to-do list, petitions to sign, marches to attend, calls to our elected officials to make, and on and on – having a simple course of action is what gets us through.

So, we’ve created a number of Action Plans with easy actions to take including lesson plans, organizations to donate to, volunteer opportunities, purchases that support organizations working on the issues, and more. We hope these resources are helpful for you too. Please check back often as we are continuing to add plans. Also, please note, these are living, breathing documents that live on Google Docs so they can be updated as things change.
