I have written this book because I yearn to see more joy and well-being for all people, I want to see the health of Mother Earth restored, and I want to know that she will be protected for future generations. This vision will involve millions of people doing their part to transform our culture and society. We can begin with ourselves, and then engage our families, friends, and community. Toward this end, I offer this understanding of family activism and the Familia Approach - wisdom and tools to enable you to share in the joy of evolving our human potential for creating a better world. May the Creator bless us all for our vision and our efforts to honor all creation.
