As such, the Coalition has drafted a resolution to recognize access to drinking water and bathrooms as a fundamental human right.... Read More

Musings from our fabulous board member Helen Zeldes.  What do you think? Microactivism. The hands-on kind. We are the ones we have been waiting for. We are the Think Dignity and we are a collective of women (and men) who do not sit around and arm-chair weep about the problems of the world or our community.

The empowerment of women around a dinner table, calling on the skills of our gender – our compassion, mothering,... Read More
