Given the challenges of a hurting economy, climate change, resource
shortages, and political paralysis, how can we all live well now and into
the future?

A vibrant “community resilience” movement has sprung up to address these
challenges and create the communities we want. Learn more on this free
webinar – click here to register

Across the nation, grassroots organizers are working to create resilient
systems for food, energy, transit, health, livelihoods, education, and much
more—systems that will be able to weather the coming shocks of a rapidly
shifting economy and climate.

[image: J&P]In order to create resilience, people are coming together as
communities, finding their inner passions, using their skills, and trusting
each other. Truly resilient systems must be equitable, creating wellbeing
for all across boundaries of race, class, language, and income. This work
requires and enables us to reconnect with each other, repairing the torn
social fabric we inherited.

Join this webinar to learn more about the Community Resilience and “
Transition <http://transitionus.org/>” movement. You’ll hear stories from
communities about their work to create local food, support local business,
bridge race and class divides, and much more.
