'Peoples' Visioning' strives to make Columbia better through collaboration

The elections are over. The harder work continues, or begins, depending on which way you look at it. The people have to come together and organize around ideas and policies that make sense and are fair. That’s the route the "Peoples’ Visioning" has been taking — we have come together to bring new ideas forward. Now we continue to build and develop both the Vision and the movement-building and collaboration required to move them forward. Our Vision is similar to the idea of a "Peace Economy" and addresses justice issues including sustainability, jobs, climate change preparedness and necessary adaptation. We will address climate change and create good-paying jobs, especially for those who make up the larger percentage of our unemployed numbers and heal "old wounds" in our community!
