Would you recommend ACTIONN ~ Acting in Community Together in Organizing Northern Nevada?

by alan c. (May 30, 2019)
First off I have a long history of organizing grass roots social change groups in California and have never before encountered a group paying people to speak at events. When an event with a paid amount for participation was talked about and the leader of the group asked for “volunteers” the hands flew into the air faster than you could imagine, doh wonder why? When I asked the leader of the group about her knowledge that a number of the paid participants where active addicts her response was that she was non-judgmental, lol considering it was obvious I was judged for asking the question. When I asked her if she felt any responsibility about how the money may be used her response was NO. That some of the members have had traumatic events in their life like that was an excuse for sponsoring the continuing addictions. Those of us in recovery might think of the phrase “poor me, poor me, pour me another drink.
