Frank Kirkpatrick commented on You the People Have the Power 2016-12-06 02:52:12 -0600 on December 06, 2016 at 02:52 AM (CST)Incredible powerful video. I am encouraging the Transition Team to perhaps replace this video with a modified version that encapsulates modern scenes and situations relevant to our times such as this. https://youtu.be/fJekzvSsB90
Frank Kirkpatrick posted about Thrift Shop Day on Facebook 2016-11-21 22:55:54 -0600 on November 21, 2016 at 10:55 PM (CST)Please RSVP: Thrift Shop Day
Though thrift shops have been generally replaced with discount department stores in modern times, the intent behind Thrift Shop Day still applies – save money and be economical by purchasing second-hand, repaired or simply repurposed products. Clothing, furniture and household goods are great examples of products which you may be able to find and purchase cheaply from thrift shops or discount stores.

Perhaps it would be advantageous to remove; Assign Political Capital Based on Memebership Levels. Create Ability to Edit Copy on Log In Page. As these issues have been resolved. Thank you again for your tireless work to improve the site.Official response from Nicole Bienfang planned
Neither of these issues is in fact resolved. Nationbuilder has now moved Assign Political Capital Based on Membership Levels to 'Considering'. And Edit Copy on Log In Page has now been escalated to No Error Message When Navigating to a Page You Do Not Have Permissions to Access

After reading this, please endorse below as The Transition sees YOU as one of our many beneficiaries.
Intent: We unite and empower people to take positive action towards enhancing and protecting all life and our environment for future generations.
Purpose: Our purpose is to construct real solutions by providing the support, space, and resources for the common heritage of the Earth's resources and to do so via our collective knowledge. We are committed to building community projects that promote organic farming, alternative transportation, clean drinking water, renewable energy, green building, and using music and the arts to convey the message.
With a special focus on street-involved youth and families living in poverty, we encourage community involvement through collaborative volunteerism, education, programs and media events. We help others enhance their food and housing security, learn life skills, and build confidence to make the transition to a more sustainable lifestyle - leading to a Global Egalitarian System for the good of all.
We strive to create an inclusive community where all members have the skills, confidence, and support to live a healthy life. It is our pledge to each other and to the world we are creating, to help each other live life to the fullest.
Our method of collaboration within our Transition Inter-Community Network is based on scientific benchmarks to meet everyone's’ needs - instead of what’s most profitable - therefore exchange between members requires no monetary attachment.

Frank Kirkpatrick rsvped for International Day of Peace via Chloe Everhart 2016-08-25 11:11:15 -0500 on August 25, 2016 at 11:11 AM (CDT)
The International Day of Peace, sometimes unofficially known as World Peace Day, is observed annually on 21 September. It is dedicated to world peace, and specifically the absence of war and violence, such as might be occasioned by a temporary ceasefire in a combat zone for humanitarian aid access. The day was first celebrated in 1982, and is kept by many nations, political groups, military groups, and peoples.
