Social Justice The Zeitgeist of Resistance—a Historical River Flowing Justice is a historical river flowing to us, around us, and through us, toward freedom.

Joy is the satisfaction of sharing solutions. Join us at Our Zine 100TPC Facebook discussion page. It's unique: 2018 NEWS & GUIDELINES FOR POSTING ON THE DISCUSSION PAGE: We're especially interested in filling a gap by collecting info on practical initiatives - ideas for taking action - from anywhere in the world, "best practices" so to speak that foster peace, sustainability and social justice, especially those that might be picked up and implemented elsewhere.
