* Local: 

"Inclusive Government"

I am working hard in my town in Massachusetts to help improve government by making it more transparent, accountable, and inclusive. My goal is for  "government to come to you" rather than making you track down government officials to "be heard".

For a "status", choose "Terra for Selectmen" to the left.

* Regional: 

"Promote Citizen Activism"

I support regional action to help inform legislators of local positions on important issues.  I work with citizen action groups in the cities of Boston, Jamaica Plain, Somverville and Cambridge.  These past years, I've been focusing on reducing the impacts of gentrification and working to ensure that any housing built meets an actual community need...that of TRULY affordable housing. The organizations that I help most promote "sustainable" social justice like Right to the City, City Life/Vida Urbana, Bikes Not Bombs, Food Not Bombs, several household goods and construction supply and electronics recycling groups.  (Ask me if you are interested in recycling these types of things)  I work with social awareness groups that show citizens how to get involved in government and community service.

* National/International: 

The "Relief Databsse" an online, peer-to-peer database of mutual aid community groups

"Disaster Relief Logistics and Recycling Efforts"

The Citizen Action Team's Relief Database is a method for donors & volunteers to connect directly with organizations that do relief and social services work.  It's for any community.  It's free.

It is a way to recycle surplus and to get donations out to the field in the most direct
way possible.

It allows people who have/need to connect with who have/need so we can share and avoid waste, thus making our community resources go further.
