Can you imagine a world where people truly care?

Are you an organization or business that wants to be part of creating this world? If so, you’re in the right place!

The Coalition for Good is a network of organizations, businesses, and movements committed to our common good, our community good. We view the world as a community: humans, animals, and the planet itself. The Coalition connects and supports all who are doing the transformative work of creating a more compassionate, diverse, inclusive, just and equitable world for all.

It’s like a Chamber of Commons.

We are connecting All That is Good in the world. 

Awareness of the the common good challenges us to see ourselves in one another and to recognize that we are all valued members of the community and the larger society. In a caring, just, inclusive society built upon community and the common good, we learn to respect diversity, inclusion and individual freedom while working together to catalyze transformation to a more caring world.

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

 

To work for the common good requires an awareness of our innate interconnectedness and interdependence, and a desire to integrate this awareness in all we do – as individuals, organizations, communities, and societies. True progress is achieved when we engage in actions that transcend individual interest and benefit the larger community:  All life on this planet we all call home.

INTERCONNECTEDNESS  *   INTERDEPENDENCE   *   INTERSECTIONALITY

 

It’s time for a moral and spiritual awakening–a cultural transformation

A key aspect of the societal transformation so desperately needed is an appreciation of unity in diversity: Unity without uniformity and diversity without fragmentation, which means we must be dedicated to inclusion, not only diversity. To work toward this, we must raise awareness of 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). 

To this end, the Coalition for Good advocates for No-Othering ZONES, allowing us to connect, collaborate, create and celebrate caring, just and equitable communities and societies. We are launching the Coalition via the No-Othering ZONE™ Campaign, reaching out to aligned cities, organizations, businesses, schools and universities to collaborate in this movement and join us as founding members of the Coalition for Good.

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
Real leadership and growth emerge from our willingness to ask for help and give it. Authentic human networks are built on a balance of vulnerability and strength, trust and acceptance of the idea that we’ll all get better together.
Laysha Ward
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
I used to think that top environmental problems were biodiversity loss, ecosystem collapse and climate change. I thought that thirty years of good science could address these problems. I was wrong. The top environmental problems are selfishness, greed and apathy, and to deal with these we need a cultural and spiritual transformation. And we scientists don’t know how to do that.
