We moved on to addressing, in some small way, the national and global need for a vigilant community to care for them after setting up a program to help our local area the best we could given the circumstances… We wanted to find an effective way to help improve the function, appearance, and long term viability of our nation and the world for that matter. We knew that there was no way we could handle the matter entirely ourselves but if we could raise awareness and cause a movement to join our cause it could possibly propel it in the right direction.
We knew in advance that a major shift in global policy was well beyond our reach but we also knew that the best chance we had of making real change was to set up satellite programs to mimic the ones we set up back home. We started by expanding to new territory in states around us. We simply had every member of our existing team initiate conversations with friends and family within a 500 mile radius. We explained what our mission was, what effect we had been having and the success that we had already see. At that point it was easy. We scheduled road trips to 4 different states to conduct 6 meetings in places that had shown an interest in what we were doing.
This process of road tripping took nearly one year to complete. By the time we were done we had 3 successful groups stemming off of ours. They had fully functioning multi layered outreach programs including the original programs set up by us but they also had updated versions with additional nuances and entirely new programs to help out as well. A notable addition was the community watch setup in one city to keep an eye on corporations and entities that had been cited in violation of dumping ordinance on the books. It was amazing to watch these groups take on a whole new life of their own. We are now reaching out further. Beyond our surrounding 5 or 6 state territory all the way to the other side of the country. We have a total of 14 road trips setup over the next 2 years. As a matter of fact, we have seen such success that a small group had to be assigned to address the expansion effort of the organization.
Once we are finished with the bringing this community effort to the entire country, we fully intend to reach out overseas. We want to continue the positive effects of the effort by including more and more vigilant people to the cause. Given enough time, I really think we might actually have a long term effect on the well being of the planet itself.
