Freedom Inc.: Dropouts Being the Change

Freedom Inc.: Dropouts Being the Change

Homeless, jobless, high school dropouts hanging out in parking lots, doing nothing. These are the dispossessed youth that came together to end violence within and against low income communities of color in Madison, Wisconsin. Freedom Inc., one of four 2013 Torchlight Prize winners, started out 15 years ago as a group of Hmong girls coming together in a parking lot. Today, Freedom Inc. works to build leadership and organizational capacities to help marginalized communities create a world they want to live in.

– Martin Luther King, Jr. –

The Happiness Index

Bhutan is a country roughly the size of Vermont and New Hampshire combined, but with less than half the population, sandwiched between China and India. A Fulbright scholar on a visit there asks, is it demolition or progress for the country to move from an isolated, largely self-sustaining Buddhist kingdom to a modern democracy? As workers build a new road to a cliff temple and secret holy lake, her guide says, “It is the thirst of people for an easier life. But there is a trade-off between peace and convenience.” Read more about what that trade-off entails for the country that birthed the concept of Gross National Happiness. { read more }

Be The Change

Experiment with such trade-offs between peace and convenience in your own life. What could be changed and what left alone to flower in its own way?
