The definition of a think tank is:
A group of experts brought together, usually by a government, to develop ideas o a particular subject and to make suggestions for action.
One of our main projects will be to serve as a think tank for the vegan movement. One of my strengths is idea generating and networking. Because I am a voracious reader, curious, a fast typist, and a prolific networker, I have the ability to see the big picture.
I see a need for unity in the vegan movement, and I am glad to see that organizations like Direct Action Everywhere are working towards that goal.
The Jesus Vegans Think Tank will do things like:
- Research all that is going on in the vegan movement so that it can be effective
- Identify the key leaders in the various areas, and make connections with them
- Offer recommendations and connections so that more synergy can happen among these leaders
- Support groups that are helping vegans become more empowered in every way.
I am happy to be a one-person Think Tank (is that possible?) right now because I am supporting Sarah Oakley and Christopher August in their endeavors with Soul in Wonder to help vegans become healthy in body, mind, and soul.
I am also supporting the Northwest Arkansas and Ozarks animal rights movement to be empowered including co-founding the Animal Lovers of the Ozarks. and supporting the local Anonymous for the Voiceless group.
Here are some other projects I am working on so that even though Jesus Vegans Ecovillage is still forming, I can feel as if I am accomplishing something outside my own projects. I always experience a deep sense of satisfaction when I work with others to help them achieve their goals which align with my goals as well.
