Hometown: Leverett, Mass.

Hi. I teach and write about environment and social justice--was until recently in academia but now freelance. I live in western Mass but am spending time in Boston and hope to move in before too long so would be great to meet people in this group!
I'm especially interested in how visions and goals for progressive organizations are evolving in this tumultuous phase we seem to be in and trying to find ways to facilitate that evolution--most groups are so flat out with core work I think there's a need to create space for more reflection and dialogue. Also very intersted in how local groups and movements scale up (or don't) to tie in with larger scale movements. As for fun, I'm pretty eclectic and game. Lot of outdoor stuff, biking and x-c skiing. I've started singing in the past year (lessons and just joining a chorus) and want to learn guitar. Dancing is good. Mostly finding fun people to do...whatever...with, though.
It popped up while I was looking through Urban Homesteaders website.
