    Positive News & Stories of Hope

    Every day we're bombarded with bad news, disheartening stories, and the proliferation of frightening prognostications for our shared future. But . . . BUT there is good news out there of real causes for hope—they're hard to find sometimes, but they are there.

    I'd like this to be a thread for sharing our go-to sources for positive news and stories of global efforts to advance social justice reforms and steps being taken to save the environment. We need these stories and we need to share them to help each other cope.

    I'm "sticking" this thread temporarily; if there's community interest in building it further, I'll move it to the appropriate forum later.
