On the Winter Solstice, we welcome the longest night of the year as an opportunity to dream big and ignite the spark of collective action.

While we cannot predict the future, we can shape it.  We can choose now to build the world we want to live in and leave for future generations.  We can decide that this pivotal moment will indeed mark the end of the world as we know it–the world in which violence, fear, hatred and inequity causes so much needless suffering.  And, we can begin co-creating a world filled with hope, love, generosity and equality. We are filled with gratitude that we don’t have to struggle in the dark alone. Check out our newest video to learn how–together–we can bring forth a new era.

In this season of giving, join us in shaping a new paradigm for social transformation.

Since our inception in 2000, Spirit in Action has been putting principles into practice by connecting people across social divides. This past year, we’ve launched several new networks and facilitated cutting edge trainings for frontline organizations.  We need your support to continue to meet the tremendous demand for our programs.

Please take a look at our new video of our founder and Executive Director, Linda Stout, speaking about the roots of Spirit in Action. And, please give as generously as you can.

We hope we can count on you! To support our work click here.

In Solidarity,
