"What are ways (big and small) that I can be involved in enacting justice?"

submitted by Amanda P.

A:

We have SO many ideas for how to answer this question.  We suggest following our blog to see a new idea every Wednesday.

 

Top 4 Ideas:

1. Learn the stories behind what you buy.

From clothes to food, if you can't find information about the supply chain, you probably wouldn't want to know where it came from. Support products with transparency on how they are made and who is making them.  Free2Work.org is a great resource for up to date information on brands we use every day.  If in doubt, choose a local, small, independent business first!

2. Get to know your neighbors.

Having a party that might get loud and annoy your neighbors?  Invite them.  They can't be annoyed by the noise when they help make it.  Don't want to throw a party?  Go to someone else's party or join in with some community activities in your neighborhood.  If in doubt, simply say "hi" to a random person on the street.

3. Come to and share about Overflow.

Invite a friend you haven't seen in a while to grab coffee with you and catch up.  Share this page on Facebook to inspire others to think about enacting social justice.  Tweet a pic of your favorite Overflow drink.  Spread the word about our world changing mission!

4. Dream.

Use your imagination to think up a new way to make the world a better place, then go for it!  Innovate to improve conditions for yourself, those around you, and your neighbors about the world.  Can't come up with something?  Volunteer and help accomplish someone else's good ideas in the meantime.  Never give up.
