Have you had a taste of “another world is possible”?

Maybe it was the People’s climate March in Washington? Or joining 5,000 people in Montpelier that same day? Maybe it was finding your power to testify for climate solutions at the State House or at your town meeting? Or when your community or friends have banded together in the face of devastating wind storms or loved ones contracting Lyme disease?

We are all on a journey together and we can restore our relations with each other and the Earth, while we resist, build and transform our home into a world that celebrates and works for our collective liberation.

Can you support our work to resist, build, and transform?
