James' Founding Fundraising Drive
Friends, family and folks I have worked with over the years -- I’d like to invite you to support my new project - Rights & Democracy, doing work to help build a movement for a more just world in Vermont and New Hampshire.
I’ve worked incredibly hard for the better of the past two decades to create social change in a world where many people think it’s futile to even try. I’ve learned through experience that the opposite is true. We really can change things in big ways, even if we start small. We can create ripples which become waves across the country, and can build upon larger waves across the world as a global movement for human rights and true democracy. Everything does and must start locally, but our actions contribute to something much, much bigger.
Being a parent has deepened my commitment more than I would ever had imagined. Not just feeling responsible for my kids’ futures, but thinking of all the little kids everywhere, and the kids that they will all have, and really how scary the world that they will inherit one day could look if we don't get organized to make sure it is just and sustainable. What fuels me is when I think about being able to sit down with my sons some day and explain how an economic system driven by greed was killing the planet and other species, but that my friends, the people in my community, and beyond did everything that we could to turn things around. I really believe we can make the future a success story, not a tragedy. I think we have a huge responsibility to make as much change as we possibly can and I've been blown away by all of the amazing folks who have begun coming together as members of Rights & Democracy and be part of this movement.
I would be thrilled to have you join us and make a donation (and help me meet my goal). We have gotten off to a great start, but we can make an enormous impact over the next year with wide open elections in both states. If enough of us work together we can win. Thank you for all your support!
PS: If you'd rather send a check, you can mail to Rights & Democracy, 70 S. Winooski Ave. #205, Burlington, VT 05401. Thanks!
