Hope Tank: Petaluma & Berkeley

The world has enough think tanks. We need hope tanks!

Each month, we gather with local friends to generate ideas for building a nonviolent world. Hope tanks are nonviolence affinity groups for working out strategies for the Great Turning.

Join us for monthly discussions in which we generate ideas for building a nonviolent world. Come for the opening meditation, and bring something vegetarian to share for the potluck breakfast.
