Future Community (a newsletter)

Future Community is about how people build the future. We’re looking at ideas, innovations and inspirations that help people build the communities, memberships, governments and organizations that are equal, hopeful, just and, well, to put it simply: good for everyone.

You’ll also get some updates on progressive political organizing, climate, books and music.

If you’ve been around a while you may know that this newsletter used to be called Bright Ideas and was more centered on nonprofit management.
