After a long period of thought and planning, SNAC and it's dedicated members are ready turn thought into action by promoting education, positive action and building a true community together for our people working tirelessly toward the collective good.
Sacramento, but nature and nurture is a politically charged area. While this may make it difficult for us to express our unique views, it gives us the opportunity to be heard by many. If we are able to reach the few enlightened individuals in the crowd, our goal has met fruition.
Many of us, me included, have felt the painful ramifications that are a direct result of the declining cohesion in our community. The recent economic downfall, the rise in crimes perpetrated against our people, the scourge of drugs of rampant alcoholism and the lack of resources to fight these battles has forced us to take a stand. We see a solution and it is already alive among us.
A simple way of living, surrounding ones self with other like minded people all working toward the common good of the community has stood the test of time as a successful social structure. It is our fervent desire and moral duty to bring our communities back to this proven means of not only surviving but prevailing in the face of adversity.
Our elemental strength does not lie in leadership or a governing party, but the core that is our people. Our numbers are not indicative of our power, rather our devotion to the greater good of the community. We currently are few, but it is our desire to grow and build our support system. It is not important to us to have a hoardes of individuals, but rather a solid collective of strong people no matter what that physical number may be. If you have experienced what we have and feel what we do about our future and are ready to take the next step in creating a positive change for our people, join us in positive action.
Here are a few examples of the positive activities we and our colleagues have engaged in over the last year:
