The times in which we’re living are dramatic and unstable, yet pregnant with new possibilities for a future released from the shackles of fear.
At a time when fear and hatred have been turned into a political force, is it possible to harness the powers of love and decency for political purposes as well?
In fact we must, for the survival of our democracy depends on it. Our task is to create a new, whole-person politics, breaking free of a paradigm based on a decidedly outdated view of the world and embracing a more enlightened understanding of our relation to the universe. We need a deeper, multi-dimensional understanding of our national story: where we have been, where we are, and where we need to go now.
As with other extraordinary times in our history — from our Founding to Abolition to Women’s Suffrage to the Civil Rights era — it is time once again to break free of an old way of being and embrace a new story going forward. As in the words of Abraham Lincoln, “… we must think anew, and act anew. We must disenthrall ourselves, and then we shall save our country.”
Marianne Williamson will be touring the country this year, discussing how a revolution in consciousness paves the way to both personal and national renewal. In the words of Martin Luther King, Jr., “Our goal is to create a beloved community and this will require a qualitative change in our souls as well as a quantitative change in our lives.” Let us embrace the possibility of both.

America is experiencing a dramatic moment of both peril and opportunity. Millions are asking, “What can I do to make a difference?”
And there is much that we can do.
One of the major ways we can resist the current dynamic in Washington is to support a huge wave of change in the 2018 Midterm Congressional elections. And it is time to get started now.
I’m writing to alert you to some Congressional candidates whose campaigns are aligned with the values we support at SISTER GIANT. Their service in Congress would make a huge and positive difference in America, and I hope you will consider them for your support in whatever way you can.
Please click here for a list of initial endorsements; please peruse the sites of the candidates and, where it feels right to you, put your energy toward helping them win. Whether it’s working for their campaigns or sending a financial contribution however small, together we can create a huge wave of change and send an entirely new breed of politician to Congress.
I know I don’t need to tell you what a critical moment this is. We can redirect the course of American history now, and for the sake of our children and grandchildren I pray that we will.
Let’s make America love again.
All my best,
