Mission Statement

It is our shared privilege and duty to be involved in the improvement of our community.

A civil and livable society depends on passionate citizens--volunteers and leaders willing to stir us to action to help our communities and, when necessary, to speak out and persevere against unfair orthodoxies.

Our actions should be guided by a deep concern for fairness.

The informed discussion of difficult issues, the creative exploration of common ground solutions, and the desire to understand the views of others are essential to the formation of fair and effective social policies.

We should honor ordinary citizens with outstanding records of helping their communities.

Description

The Foundation aims to encorage the kind of passionate citizenship championed by Tom Wales-- the energetic, courageous, and informed involvement of ordinary citizens in the issues and challenges that affect their communities. This spirit of citizenship begins with the unselfish desire to help others and is served by open-minded willingness to listen to alternatives, the ability to forge fair collective resolutions, and the courage and determination to persist with a cause even in the face of adversity.
