The Center for a New American Dream is the only national organization dedicated to articulating a new American story -- one that offers a strong vision and tangible examples of a future that emphasizes community, ecological sustainability, and a celebration of non-material values. Our social and environmental challenges grow ever greater, and consumer spending is a leading driver of our economic, social, and environmental declines. We need to make fundamental changes to America’s culture and economy in order to attain social and ecological sustainability.
To do this, New Dream...
By telling stories that are outside of the mainstream, yet demonstrate the possibilities that emerge from rethinking how we can achieve a higher quality of life.
By putting tools and resources -- videos, webinars, publications, small grants, and more -- in your hands so that you can make a difference in your community, together with neighbors and friends.
By harnessing your values and vision to counter the commercialization in our culture, create new economic arrangements that benefit communities and the planet, and pursue a healthier work-life balance.
The Center for a New American Dream is excited to participate in the 2014 CrowdRise Holiday Challenge. But we need YOUR help to make it a success! If you care about challenging rampant consumerism, promoting a sustainable economy, demanding accountability from advertisers and corporations, and you want to demonstrate your values this holiday season, we hope you will consider helping New Dream meet its goal of raising $10,000 in the Challenge.
