Can you imagine a world where people truly care? If so, you’re in the right place!

Coalition for Good is a global network of movements and organizations – not-for-profit, private business, public sector, social enterprise – committed to care: caring about, in order to care for and, ultimately, care with one another. We care about the Common Good and view the world as a community: humans, animals, and the planet itself. Our coalition connects and supports all who are doing the transformative work of creating a more inclusively diverse, just, equitable, sustainable world for all. We embrace all aligned issues and areas of focus, and work together to create opportunities to develop ongoing relationships between all members and missions, not mere transactions. 

We’re like a multi-stakeholder Chamber of Commons, where we have #CaringInCommon

 When we work together, when we genuinely collaborate, all manner of good is possible.

who

Coalition for Good shares a belief in our innate interconnectedness and interdependence, and a desire to integrate this awareness in all we do – as individuals, organizations, communities, and societies. We share a dedication to make choices and engage in actions that transcend individual interest and benefit the larger community:  All life on this planet we all call home. We’re building and Ecosystem for Good.

INTERCONNECTEDNESS 

INTERDEPENDENCE

INTERSECTORALITY

 

To this end, our vision of the Common Good supports the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals

 

 

It’s time to evaluate our values and priorities. It’s time for moral courage.

The transformation we need won’t happen without a commitment to inclusivity. Diversity isn’t enough.

When the goal is a caring, just, inclusive world, the contrast of What Is is evident: Othering. To work toward #UnityInDiversity we must recognize and face our propensity to see people as The Other; as “those people”; as less than or, worse, subhuman and of less inherent value and worth because they are different from us in some way and don’t belong to the same group(s). Humans also have a tendency to other non-human animals and the Earth. We must recognize our innate interconnectedness and see ourselves in one another.

Words of Wisdom

We can either emphasize those aspects of our traditions…that speak of hatred, exclusion, and suspicion or work with those that stress the interdependence and equality of all human beings. The choice is yours.
Karen Armstrong
I believe that to meet the challenges of our times, human beings will have to develop a greater sense of universal responsibility. Each of us must learn to work not just for oneself, one’s own family or one’s nation, but for the benefit of all humankind. Universal responsibility is the key to human survival, it is the foundation for world peace.
Dalai Lama
I think we need to recover a world in which we all receive gifts and we all have duties…
The basic problem is that we need to rediscover “commoning” – the commons as a verb, the commons as a set of social practices…Reciprocity, sense of self, willingness to argue, long memory, collective celebration and mutual aid are traits of the commoner.”
Joan Tronto
A human being is part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.
Albert Einstein
We must build transformative, long-term coalition relationships rooted in a clear agenda that doesn’t measure success only be electoral outcomes. We must be clear: Fusion coalitions are not about simple transactions where I support your issue if you support mine. We must learn how our issues intersect in a comprehensive moral agenda that demands transformation of everyone — not least, us.
Rev. Dr. William Barber II
Compassion is a deeply held belief that we’re inextricably connected to each other by something rooted in love and goodness. Empathy is the skill set to bring compassion alive … It’s about how to communicate deep love for people so people know they’re not alone.
Brené Brown
Either we are committed to making a world in which all people are of value, everyone redeemable, or we surrender to the idea that some of us are truly better and more deserving of life than others, and once we open the door to that possibility, we cannot control it. … If we agree to accept limits on who is included in humanity, then we will become more and more like those we oppose.
Aurora Levins Morales
The plain fact is that the planet does not need more successful people. But it does desperately need more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers, and lovers of every kind. It needs people who live well in their places. It needs people of moral courage willing to join the fight to make the world habitable and humane. And these qualities have little to do with success as we have defined it.
