Dear Citizens for Global Solutions friends, members and supporters,
The boards of Citizens for Global Solutions are excited to announce a new direction for the organization -- one that reflects our current resource capacities and some difficult but realistic decisions by our volunteer leadership.
Opportunities lie ahead of us, and we feel these changes will allow us to take advantage of them.
Earlier this month, the boards agreed to transition to a volunteer-run association. Our current staff is moving on to new opportunities. Over the next year our boards and trustees will oversee renovation of our national offices into housing for young interns.
We are maintaining our issue-driven website and social media, our advocacy and educational efforts, and our commitment to donors and activists.
We will leverage our new partnership with the Commission on Global Security, Justice and Governance in support of several urgently needed global reforms, and several chapters will participate again in the Global Week of Action this October.
Nationally and locally, our activists will continue educating and advocating for solutions to climate change, mass atrocities, and nuclear proliferation. As always, these efforts come together to ensure our goal of a democratically governed world, which remains an inspiring vision for many.
The new approach will engage our leadership around the country and revitalize our local chapters. During this time, CGS will build upon the strategy adopted last year that seeks to ensure long term success. As appropriate, CGS will also work with professional consultants to assist us as we continue much of our grassroots mobilization to “build political will in the United States for international cooperation and democratic global institutions that establish peace, justice and sustainability under the rule of law.”
We look forward to your continued support for our engagement on the most important global challenges for our country and our world. If you have any questions, please reach out to us personally on social media or via email.
