Interrupting Business-As-Usual and Issuing The Bold Invitation To Live Share Grow
Everyday, billions of dollars change hands. Goods are bought and sold. Wall St. opens and closes the stock market. Banks lend and collect money. People borrow and pay back loans. Commerce is part of being human . . . but right now commerce is full of injustice, theft, cheating, and causing harm. We need to change that.
Live Share Grow uses nonviolent action to actively oppose problems . . . and propose solutions. Remembering Dr. King’s principle of nonviolence: to be against the injustice, but not against the person, we take action together to interrupt business-as-usual and invite our fellow human beings to change their practices to respectful, sustainable, equitable, and life-affirming practices.
Using visibility actions, demonstrations, marches, rallies, sit-ins, street theater, prayer circles and vigils, mindfulness actions, leafleting, and more, Live Share Grow connects our fellow human beings with the truth of the harm done by business-as-usual, and with the viable alternatives that are possible for them to participate in.
We’ll be sharing ways to take action in coordination with people nationwide. Want to help us with that? Contact us! And, connect with our lively, creative email list!
