|Before I had children I worked as a CNA, in long term care facilities. I took a few years off to be able to stay home with my children, but now that they are off to school I work full time in the restaurant industry and I work weekends for Friendship Community Care. FCC is a non profit (501c3), established to provide care for the developmentally handicapped. Helping people has always been my passion, and I believe that every capable person should do something daily to brighten the lives of someone else. |
|I firmly believe in the Green 10 key values:
The powerless suffer the most from resource depletion and toxic pollution. Greens believe in direct participation by all people in the environmental, political, and economic decisions that affect their lives.
The Greens recognize that the Earth sustains all life processes. Green ecology moves beyond environmentalism by understanding the common roots of the abuse of nature and the abuse of people. Whatever we do to the web of life, we do to ourselves.
Social Justice and Equal Opportunity
Greens want to replace the worldwide system of poverty and injustice with a world free of all oppression.
Greens reject violence as a way of settling disputes. It is shortsighted, morally wrong, and ultimately self-defeating. We are working to create a world where war is obsolete.
Power and responsibility must be restored to local communities within an overall framework of ecologically sound and socially just values and lifestyles.
Greens seek a new economics based upon the natural limits of the Earth, which meets the basic needs of everyone on the planet, under democratic, localized community control.
The Green movement is profoundly inspired by feminist values. The ethics of cooperation and understanding must replace the values of domination and control over others.
Respect for Diversity
Greens honor the biological diversity of the Earth and the cultural, sexual and spiritual diversity of Earth's people. We aim to reclaim this country's finest ideals; popular democracy, the dignity of the individual, and liberty and justice for all.
Personal and Global Responsibility
Greens demonstrate a commitment to global sustainability and international justice through political solidarity, and in personal lifestyles, based on sufficiency and living lightly.
Future Focus and Sustainability
Like the Iroquois, Greens seek a society where the interests of the seventh generation are considered equal to the interests of the present. We must reclaim the future for our children and ourselves.
