Active Hope

Welcome!active hope by joanna macy

You just found your people! We are a group of social justice activists and advocates standing up and taking action to create positive change, big and small, in this new world. We are inspired by Joanna Macy’s book “Active Hope.”


What is next for you??

Several groups based on loose themes have been formed recently. You need not have read the book to lend your time and talents to any group or project. We invite you to come make some new friends who care about the same things as you do.

  • Clean & Green: energy, environment, water, etc
  • Hear Our Voices: women’s equality, paid family leave, etc, inequality, LGBTQ+,  diversity, refugee/immigrant support, public policy, communications, money out of politics, etc
  • Artists for Social Change: any medium or level of talent (to support themes above)

You may find out more about any of these groups by sending an email to
