"In Transition 2.0" is an inspirational immersion into the Transition movement, gathering stories from around the world of ordinary people doing extraordinary things. You’ll hear about communities printing their own money, growing food everywhere, localizing their economies and setting up community power stations. It’s an idea that has gone viral, a social experiment that is about responding to uncertain times with solutions and optimism. In a world that is awash with gloom, here is a story of…See More

Profile Information

How are you currently involved in the Transition?
I moved my money, support Occupy Together, have been supporting progressive movements and political candidates who are most likely to bring progressive policy change to our country that favor all people, the environment and other animals all over the globe.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
My mom was an FDR Democrat while my dad was a Barry Goldwater Conservative with strong libertarian leanings. Many dinnertime discussions made me the committed progressive I am. I think globally and act locally, spending my career working on behalf of the world's children and their families in many countries throughout the world. I participated in organizing the first Earth Day on my campus in 1970. Once I returned home and retired, I realized how far our country had moved from our history, our national traditional values and a trajectory that is sustainable and desirable. I see this transition movement as a viable means of getting back on track.
Do you have particular interests, skills, talents or resources you would like to bring to Transition Whatcom?
As I become more involved I'll let you know.
In what neighborhood or part of the county do you reside?
New York moved to Portland, OR in mid-2011, with a 5 year stint in Texas.
Where did you hear about Transition Whatcom and how did you find our community network website?
