Imagine our community, our world…
with no one left behind
In a nutshell, this is the underlying theme of Let Us Move Together – the collective spirit and working group behind Together Northampton.
In keeping with this spirit, Together Northampton is being mailed for free to every home and every business in all of the communities that are part of our city.
Here are some of the key ideas that have inspired me over the years and led to the development of Let Us Move Together and Together Northampton:
- The Economic Bill of Rights envisioned by Franklin Delano Roosevelt
- Gross National Happiness, a movement, which envisions our goals to be the happiness and well-being of our community and nation
- Economic Democracy, a movement, which seeks to manage our economy democratically for the well-being of all instead of for the benefit of a few
My dream is for Together Northampton to highlight and encourage the many ways in which our community is working in cooperative, collaborative, and democratic ways to meet life’s basic necessities and improve the happiness and well-being of all. I hope this resource guide will help our community become more informed about and engaged in the great work our neighbors are leading and inviting us to join.
