As those of you know who’ve been reading my posts over the past few weeks, my world got a bit of a shake up when it was discovered earlier this summer that I’ve had some nocturnal seizures. I’ve had a bunch of tests done, but nothing has uncovered the cause yet. In Wisconsin if you have epilepsy it’s illegal to drive unless you’ve been seizure free for at least three months. Given that I don’t own a car, I don’t drive much anyway. But, this new restriction has gotten me thinking more about my role in social change work and in how I do consulting, training, and organizing work. I’ve got a lot of questions. I’d like to get your insights. Please take a few moments to respond to any of the questions below that you have thoughts on. Thanks!
- Do you know any consultants or organizations who are doing community organizing training work online that you think really works at building community?
- Who is creating the models that work for sustaining organizers?
- What would you like me to talk about in future blogs posts?
- What would be helpful for me to put on a website for you to use in your organizing work?
- How do you connect and build community with other people and groups?
- How could this blog and/or an organizing website help you build an organizing community?
- What others ways could my writing be helpful to you?
Those are just a few of the questions on my mind this evening. The other deep question is about returning to graduate school. Right now I am working on a masters certificate in Sustainability Leadership and deciding whether I should do a full masters in Sustainability Leadership or Education or if I should pursue a doctorate in some area of Sociology even though I wouldn’t be done with school until at least my mid-forties. Anyone who wants to get into that area of puzzlement , I welcome you to puzzle with me!
Thanks everyone who shares thoughts!
