So we made a pact to spend February on the road in a quest to explore new ways of living well together. Join us to discuss all possibilities. Even (especially!) those that seem impossible given our current political establishment, the media, and the narrow field of public debate. This session will include inspiring examples of what is possible as well as the opportunity to share your own ideas. http://www.rethinkthesystem.org/ We are open to suggestions, but urging as many woman and those who love them to join us and dance, stand up, drum, rise be a part of over one billion people who are calling for an end to violence against women and children.
