I'm in conversation with friends and supporters about the mission of the San Diego Foundation for Change.  I think our misssion should be this: "growing grassroots movements for social justice in San Diego/Tijuana."  Do you like the sound of this.  Why?  Why not?

I think that your recommendation of helping to grow grassroots movements for change in this bioregion is one of the best ideas I have heard in some time.  I, for one, and there are probably many others, would like to help you advance and support that purpose. 

I have been part of the movement for change in this area for the past generation and, though there have been many hard workers out there in the hustings for worthy causes in the peace, justice and environmental areas, our membership, as seen by people who participate in our work and the larger numbers who come to events, has not grown significantly in that time.  An infusion of new ideas and ways of doing things is more than welcome and will relieve the load from some of the elders who have continued to work in the fields of change in this bioregion.

I am also glad that you have included Tijuana in your projection of the extent of work that may need to be done in the near future.  I see that this is a long neglected part of the arena for change in this area.  Many people cross this border to Mexico, both ways, on a daily basis, however too few of the changemakers have taken this into consideration in the work that we do.  More power to you and your cohorts in this incremental movement forward.  John Falchi

Thank you for your thoughtful and helpful post to our message board, John.  It is encouraging to me that the vision of "growing grassroots movements" rings true with you.  I look forward to our continued collaboration.

It's always fun for me to be counted as still a part of a "younger generation"!!!

Peace to you,

(the other) John F
