About me:

Since 9/11/2001, I have been a peace activist. I am a person, a male, a member of Women's International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF), the National Organization of Women (NOW), supporter of CODEPINK, and a member my local peace group, Newton Dialogues on Peace and War. I work as a Real Estate Broker

Exhibit change by:

My efforts to exhibit change are to tell everyone that I am a peace activist. I tell them that I have developed an initiative where everyone can participate. It is called a Global Strategy of Nonviolence (www.GSofNV.org).

I'm passionate about:

After reading the Chalice and the Blade, by Riane Eisler, I became totally dedicated to supporting what Eisler called a cultural transformation theory. It states that society can change from a male-dominated society to a partnership society. Eisler states there is evidence of it happening already. My role is to thrust the effort into the mainstream as a means for preventing and stopping war, which also ultimately affects all humanitarian issues and invariably, all women's issues.

From Community:

Women and Nonviolence
Sister Joan Chittister is the most amazing woman activist of our time. She has been to Gaza, Syria, India to empower women. This story suggests nonviolence and women can change the world, if the women so choose.  

From Community:

In the year 2008, people on the planet earth are able to communicate with each other instantaneously because of telephones and cell phones, computers and the internet, and television and satellites. As a result, people’s ideas and desires are contemplated on a worldly basis. This interaction leads to a common understanding that people can help each other. This understanding is evident when disaster strikes. On December 26, 2004, a Tsunami, a devastating ocean wave, struck in the South Pacific killing over one hundred thousand people and destroying billions of dollars worth of property. The world responded immediately with health care, financial aid, and other emergency assistance. For a short period of time, human needs became more important than ideology, religion, or national boundaries. A disaster brought people together. What kind of a disaster would allow human needs to transcend boundaries on a regular basis? Or does it have to be a disaster?
