* Hey Changemaker, one note before you get started: we're in the midst of a global pandemic and people around the world have varying ability to move about; much of what we suggest here for potential actions are still possible in the time of social distancing, but some are obviously not. We're depending on you to know the difference!

“Another meeting?! When are we gonna get started with some hands on projects?”
“I can do some research into other communities who’ve done this well.”
“This is great! I'll call Suzie and Toni and Mitchell as soon as I get home.”
“I could provide childcare for the meeting.”
“Woohoo, look at all these volunteers.” (You happen to be running the meeting).
“I could design some flyers and create a Facebook group to help get the word out.”

You feel like people aren’t saying what they actually mean
The broader community isn’t consulted and choices are made in a vacuum
There isn’t an equal playing field
People don’t approach the situation carefully and thoughtfully
Decisions are made without all the needed information
People complain about something and don’t provide a path forward

Deeply inquisitive and in constant pursuit of new and better information
Always knows just what to say, or how to express themselves
A real problem-solver
Guided by a strong moral compass
A true collaborator with a rich group of friends and colleagues
A real backbone of the family or community

Spending a leisurely afternoon out at a museum or doing some writing
Attending a local screening, lecture, community event
Throwing a big party with friends that you think ought to meet each other
Cooking a special dinner for your family and friends
Poring over the Sunday paper and doing some much anticipated reading
Tinkering around in your workshop or garden

One last thing...
