We meet on alternate Sundays at the San Jose Peace & Justice Center.
AID was founded in 1991 with the vision: "Problems are interconnected, so must be the solution."
The interconnected nature of the problems neither starts nor stops with the people who are poor - it affects all of us. Our inability to tackle these problems, take the initiative, trust and work with others and overcome the fear to question authority or change life-styles is very much a part of this web of problems and has to be tackled.
Cover both the breadth of the country and the depth of the problems in a holistic manner through:
Once we recognize that solutions are interconnected, we take feedback loops or learning from our efforts and that of others seriously, and action guided by such learning bootstraps an exponentially growing solution to the problems.
Practice the Solutions:
Rather than only thinking of "solving problems" where the problems are implicitly someone elses and the solution something to be found, we actively think in terms of practicing the solutions, here and now.
