Michael Brune, RAN’s Executive Director, just sent out this email asking all of us to bring our excitement and inspiration from yesterday’s election to a discussion around how we should move forward together. Take a look and use the comments to add your voice. Michael and other RAN staff will join in as the discussion grows! –Robin
Last night’s decisive victory by Barack Obama proved that a message of hope can change the world. It showed us that yes, we can end the cultural divisions that paralyse progress, and that by uniting in a common cause, we can all be agents of change.
In the words of the president-elect, now is our time.
As we embark on a new path of possibility, we must also start a dialogue about how, together, we will move forward. Today, I invite you to join that conversation.
Since the Reagan administration, RAN has served as the mosquito in the tent of corporate America, drawing attention to our planet’s most critical environmental and social issues. We have been and will remain catalysts of change, and we welcome a president who believes that with hard work and a shared vision, we can transform the world for the better.
We have an opportunity to bring about real change in the world’s mightiest corporations. But with opportunity comes responsibility, and now is the time for all of us to work together to protect our planet.
Are you ready to take this historic, grassroots movement to the next level? The question we all have to ask ourselves is how, as individuals, we can work collectively to ensure and shape the change promised by an Obama presidency.
So please, let us know what you think. Use this forum to share your excitement, and lend your voice to this important–and inspiring–discussion.
Moving forward together,
