Dear Neighbor,

If you are reading this, I have reached out to you personally, or you were invited by someone who I invited personally. In other words, this is an Invite-only Soft Launch of the Alliance for a Viable Future here in the Berkshires.

I welcome you to join this inspiring Alliance, in this initiatory phase, by coming to this Monthly Berkshires Community Leadership series of informal Potlucks & Circles in my living room.

The vision and mission of the Alliance is to create a cross-sector systems-approach to our social & ecological crises by building an interconnected root system of leadership circles for social change in communities throughout the Northeast. The plan is to begin these informal conversations here in October, with the intention to have a more formal “launch” of the Alliance in the new year.

I am inviting you, in particular, because I know that we share a deep care and commitment to work in the direction of a viable future, for our community & region; as well as the human family and all living beings, as one whole.

To learn more and rsvp, read below.
