The Most Powerful Change is Happening One Community at a Time

Sarah Van Gelder, co-founder and Editor at Large of YES! Magazine, released the article Amid Election Chaos, Communities Show Where the Real Power Is on May 25, 2015.

Ms. Van Gelder spent 18 months on a road trip last year visiting communities across the United States and witnessed “a real disquiet among the American people.” She observed, however:

…That the most powerful work for change is happening one community at a time. The local level is where people are creating ways of life that work for themselves, their communities, and the ecological systems that support all life. It’s at the local level where people feel their power.

We couldn’t agree more.
