At our February gathering we watched the powerful Robert Reich hosted documentary "Inequality For All", a no-holds-barred look at the ever-widening income gap in this country.
Now it's time to do something about it!
At the meeting we were also assigned a simple task: Come up with one -- just one -- idea for something that Valley Grassroots can do to help reverse this trend. We'll plan out our action items at the meeting. But first, send me your ideas now, which we'll incorporate into the discussion and plan.
Send your ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org. THERE ARE NO BAD IDEAS, SO BE CREATIVE! Small incremental steps after other small steps add up to a huge difference.
