Here's Your Chance

What are you concerned about?  What scares you most about the future?  And what do you believe will help fix the world we live in?  What positive things can we do to build community?

If you want to pass on valuable suggestions, pass on what you've learned, or just tell the story of your under-employment, unemployment, or any other story, you've been asked.

Rebuild the Dream

If you'd told me years ago that this kid from Tennessee would end up appearing on
The View
 alongside music legend Prince and a Hollywood star like Rosario Dawson... I would
have said you were crazy. But it just happened!
Even more amazing: Next week, Rebuild the Dream is collaborating with Prince on a
series of concerts in Chicago on September 24th, 25th & 26th!
 We're organizing a Rebuild the Dream "village" at the concert to showcase sustainable
solutions to our nation's economic problems.
Dozens of organizations throughout Chicago will be participating in this celebration
of creativity, community, and collaboration. We'll have food co-ops, local artists,
civic organizations, community credit unions and many more ways for people to build
a more vibrant and sustainable future for Chicago. And we hope to take this dynamic
event on the road to other cities!

I know most of you can't make it to Chicago with only a week's notice.
There's another way you can get involved.
We're not just collaborating with Prince because he's one of the most incredible
musicians of any era. He shares this community's commitment to building a movement
that touches people's hearts, souls, and minds.
And the first step in building that sense of community is sharing our stories.
What are your hopes and dreams for the future? What are your fears about the broken
world we live in? What values, passed down through generations, guide you today?
We'll have story-sharing booths in the Rebuild the Dream village, but I'm hoping
this community will kick things off by sharing your stories today.
Take a moment to share now.
Stories can move us from anger to love, hopelessness to hope and create a shared
vision of the future. And with a shared vision of creativity and collaboration, we
can rebuild the dream.
I hope you're as excited as I am,
