Make A Plan

Now come up with 3-5 action steps you are committing to. They can be small steps, such as “pick one organization in my community to volunteer with” or “sign up for an action alerts website.” The important thing is to get started!

We'll send these action steps to you in an e-mail, and you can share them with friends or family who can support you in taking action.

Remember - change is hard! Take a moment now to think about how you’ll remember the actions you want to take. Consider printing out your action plan and posting it on your wall or setting a reminder on your calendar.

A final note - having a community to help you take action is more fun, and you make a bigger difference. Consider organizing friends to follow up on these actions - you can all keep each other accountable!
