So COME together!
COME is a systemic, practical
response that is sorely missing in what passes for a national conversation
today. Based on decades of research, activism and hands-on experience, it was
created to provide a foundation, framework, processes,
and non-hierarchical communication tools to enable those waking up from the
status quo’s “consensus trance” to develop effective coalitions for
collaborative action that are capable of building the critical mass necessary
to catalyze life-affirming change. This is our
response to rapidly changing times brought on by a collapsing status quo—a response that is helping communities develop resiliency,
improve quality of life, reclaim their
democracy, and lay the foundation for a sustainable future.
Explore our pages to discover the
basic components of COME coalitions, how you can learn more, what people are saying
about us, how being a member of COME supports your individual or organization’s
particular endeavor—from saving species to halting fracking to getting a
candidate elected to economic reform—and what you can do to help attain the
critical mass needed for the critical change we all want and our planet needs.
Remember, democracy is not a spectator sport, and its
proper functioning requires an informed and engaged citizenry… as does a living
planet… as does a complete sense of well-being.
