From Good Intentions to
Powerful Action for Social Justice:
How to Make a Difference
... is a six-week online group program for progressive people
alarmed by the US government’s rollback of human rights,
democracy, and environmental protections.
But how? What could you do that would really matter?
How can you choose between all the issues you care about?
How can you fit social action into a life that’s already so busy?
... and where do you even begin?
YOU'RE IN THE RIGHT PLACE
I'm Emily Levy,
Founder of Power To
Make A Difference.
I’m here to help you, whether or not you consider yourself “the activist type.”
Here's the thing.
I see so many progressive people stuck with feelings and questions like these. So stuck, in fact, that they take only occasional small actions. They share social media posts. They sign online petitions. They call Congress (or not). They might occasionally attend a protest. And they’re haunted by the sense that they could or should or must do more.
Does that sound familiar?
Wouldn't you like to move beyond that feeling of stuckness so you can take more effective action?
Research has shown that no government in the world has survived when even 3.5% of people engaged in active and sustained nonviolent action against it. Imagine if 3.5% of the US population turned things around and you weren’t part of it!
Now imagine if you were.
The World Needs Who You Are Right Now
Whatever your skills, interests, or passions, there’s a way for you to use them to help the U.S. get out of the mess it’s making at home and around the globe. Traditional activism is one way to get involved, and it's not the only way!
You don’t have to understand every detail of an issue or know all the answers in order to get started.
You simply have to be willing to say,
“I’m in,” and take it from there.
To say to future generations,
“You can count on me.”
To choose to take the next step, whatever that is for you, and trust that the path will reveal itself as you travel it.
I’m here to help you recognize those next steps and take them. That’s what From Good Intentions to Powerful Action for Social Justice -- How to Make a Difference is all about.
It’s a six-week online group program designed to help you move beyond any stuckness to become more powerfully active for social or environmental justice. I’ll share insights with you based on my decades of social justice work. I’ll lead you through interactive exercises for guided personal exploration designed to help you:
• Clarify the unique combination of skills and resources you have to offer
• Choose where you want to focus your work
• Address doubts, fears, and obstacles
• Connect with other committed world-changers
• Plan and take your next steps

Feeling helpless and hopeless about the world situation can keep you stuck. Feelings of guilt about "not doing enough" won't motivate you, either. It's easy to want to give up, to turn away from the news because it's more painful than you can hold.
Our nation, our future, and our children need us to have a different response.
