Action Plan

It is time to dust off this old blog. Originally, I used this space to add to the voices of dads in the nurturing of children, an often mom-dominated environment. I also wanted something to keep me up in the practice of writing, and the blog also served to document the young lives of my children for me and those who wanted to know what was going on.

Our family dedicated two weekends to canvass in New Hampshire for Hillary Clinton and Maggie Hassan. We were partly successful. The election results, however, put many vulnerable groups in greater need of advocacy and allies. On Sunday, our family sat down to talk about what we will do to protect the things we think are important, to engage more consistently and regularly in tikkun olam (repairing the world), and to counteract the rhetoric and actions based in hate and anger.

Together, we created a list of priorities that we will search out paths for involvement:

  • Not polluting the Earth
  • Immigration
  • Education
  • Women’s Health & Reproductive Rights
  • LGBTQ rights
  • Racial Equality
  • Gun Control

This is our first step. We hope to make many more and build a community of like-minded families around us doing this work together.
