Hope for home
It’s exciting to discover communities and organizations in Northeast Pennsylvania and New York that are facilitating this type of place-based education and community action. Groups that are bringing people together, getting them talking, dreaming, creating and building. Groups like these are changing paradigms, helping people and building the infrastructure for resilient future. If you want to make an impact, join one of these groups. Make your voice heard and challenge yourself and your friends to live a little lighter. Give my friends and me a bit of hope and a reason to stick around.
