Community Empowerment Initiatives

This blog is devoted to the emerging movement for community empowerment, inclusive dialog, and a more participatory kind of democratic society. This is a place where activists in this movement can report on their projects and dialog with their fellow travellers. Contact me if you want to be able to post to this blog.

Greetings from your host

I‘m not much of an on-the-ground activist myself, and I have great respect for those who have the dedication and capacity to actually make things happen in the real world, on a face-to-face basis in the grassroots. I try to contribute in other ways, primarily involving writing, networking, and promoting initiatives which seem to be of value. I hope this blog can be a useful vehicle in supporting and encouraging the kind of initiatives that can help lead us toward a sensible and democratic society.
