share an idea— big or small

We believe that all ideas matter, from the biggest to the smallest. Tell us where you’ve been or where you’re headed. Let us know the change that you are making. Share a story, or a resource. Shed some light.

  1. “What is sacred – whether we name it Goddess, God, Spirit or something else – is not outside the world, but rather manifests in nature, in human beings in the community and culture we create. Every being is sacred – meaning that each has inherent value that cannot be ranked in a hierarchy or compared to the value of another being. Worth does not have to be earned, acquired, or proven; it is inherent in our existence.”
    ~ Starhawk, “Truth or Dare”

  2. Last night my family and I drove to Denver to meet our newest member of the family, Patricia, a 16 year old girl from Kenya. No matter what we are talking about or doing all I can think is, “I can’t wait for her to meet the YGLers”.

  3. Very excited about the new website. It looks great and I like the first featured changemaker. There was an NPR mention about this nonprofit, Boulder Food Rescue, a while back, as part of their collection of stories about community changemakers called Participation Nation, so I am happy to see it on our website.

  4. We’re into this idea of “Cooperative Banking” – the notion that, rather than feeding off the community, banking can nourish the community and local economy. Read more at: alternet.org!
