“A small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Identifying the problems is only the first step, but building a coalition to make change is necessary. Whether establishing common cause, or having a constructive conversation from opposing viewpoints, we can’t underestimate the power of people talking to people. How do we find our allies, accomplices, and co-conspirators? How do we build that coalition for change?” (6 Degrees)
