Politically Inspired Action

We are a collective of people learning, dialoguing, and taking action, based in Mountain View, California. We seek to engage with each other as politically inspired citizens in dialogue as well as create change in our local community. We focus on addressing issues of economic inequality and social justice. We believe meaningful change happens on a local level when we come together in community and look at the issues that impact all of our lives. Our book club and salons involve conscious and collaborative dialogue. The associated action group in Mountain View works on local issues of the minimum wage, affordable housing, and brings in speakers to address any social justice related issues that face our community.
