I came up with Radical Second Things in 2014, well before working at Tikkun, however, once I was there I saw the great ideals that a radical / progressive religious organization can have and also how the organizational structure can be lacking.
Rabbi Michael Lerner's emphasis on a "Global Marshall Plan" helped foster a great deal of the infrastructure focus of the posts here and on the Facebook page while his membership group, the Network of Spiritual Progressives, was a cool way of keeping people involved.
I want to mirror that model with my own network. I am announcing a network called "The American Tradinista Network." The objective of this would be much more narrow than "secular progressive" - the goal is to get everyone who would like to see policies rooted in solidarity with the poor implemented in America. I'm located in California and, with its proximity to Central America, this seems especially prescient.
Updates coming soon - this may involve a special newsletter and club benefits. Stay tuned!
