Wake up, sleeping beauties!

This has become my new favorite quote:

“The greatest mistake of the movement has been trying to organize a sleeping people around specific goals.  You have to wake the people up first, then you’ll get action.” — Malcolm X

I hope you’ve noticed my new calendar format – I have packed it with all the peace, justice and community activist events I can find from St. Louis.  This is part of my “wake up” plan – find out what my neighbors are passionate about, and point them in the direction of others who share their passion.  It is about getting active and getting connected and sharing experience.  Please be on the lookout for some more details on this effort – it is in a nebulous phase right now, but I can see it organically coming together!  Please subscribe to my website as well – either the mailing list if you like email updates, or rss feed if you take news like that.  And let me know – what are you passionate about?

    Before moving from the county to the city I was part of an interfaith discussion group. I miss it and would enjoy having one in the 8TH ward.

    Please and thank you,
