There’s nothing more worrisome than facing change; the unknown can be terrifying, especially if you’re going through it alone. But the truth is, change will happen whether you like it or not, and sometimes, change can be good! From new opportunities to new relationships, there are lots of ways to learn from and enjoy change, so long as you’re open to it. Here are some tips to help you embrace The Island Now !
What is the Island Now?
The Island Now is a time for change. We are a community of people who are passionate about making a difference. We are committed to creating a better future for ourselves and our children. We are committed to being the change we want to see in the world. That’s why we created an organization that offers us hope for the future, one that seeks to create a more just society by changing how power is distributed and by building communities where everyone has equal access to resources. As Martin Luther King Jr said, True peace is not merely the absence of tension; it is the presence of justice. It starts with you! Join us today! We invite you to join us as we help transform our local communities, make progress on social justice issues nationally and globally, and connect with like-minded people near and far.

Our health care system isn’t working, discrimination and inequality are rampant across the country, yet many politicians don’t seem to care because they have their hands full trying to keep themselves in office.
Here at home there are entire groups of people whose voices aren’t heard at all while they struggle every day just to survive. They deserve better than they’re getting from their government right now, but they can only get what they don’t have if we demand it loudly enough until those in power finally listen up and take notice.
This is your opportunity to be part of the solution. You can start by joining your local Democratic club or volunteering for a campaign for someone running for office who will actually work hard for them instead of against them.
