Active Citizens CREATE Sustainable Community!

“As citizens of this democracy, you are the rulers and the ruled, the law-givers and the law-abiding, the beginning and the end.” Adlai Stevens

“A passive and ignorant citizenry will never create a sustainable world.” Andrew Gaines

As citizens, when we actively participate in our communities, be them schools, houses of worship, civic clubs, social movements, athletics teams or arts associations, we must understand that we ARE the organization.

When we participate, we have the opportunity to shape the community and create a world that is a better place for all of us. Each and every one of our actions or inaction, create an outcome. As we choose to participate, may we all know that we can create a community that is based on trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship.

We are curious as to how YOU participate and what it has brought to your life.
