This year commit to waging justice

I have lived over half a century on this planet, most of them spent waging justice.

I have learned that each day I have the responsibility to choose the values by which I live by.

I commit my life to waging justice for everyone, everything, everywhere, now, and for all future generations.

I am taking full responsibility for living my life by this commitment. And I invite you to join me, today and every day going forward.

So what does Waging Justice mean? 

  • Waging justice means we can choose to rapidly eradicate injustice.
  • Waging justice means that I am committed to the survival of all of humanity.
  • Waging justice means that I will use my life to unleash every ounce of innovation and action to urgently address the existential threat that we all face as humanity.
  • Waging justice means I am taking each person as precious — each person with unalienable rights to justice, equal agency and privilege, and ensuring the rights of our collective humanity to live winning lives, and finally to ensure the rights of our planet Earth to sustain humanity.

All of these rights are of equal value, today and for all future generations.

Waging justice

To help inspire a movement of like-minded people committed to waging justice, I am offering digital versions of my book Waging Justice: A Doctor’s Journey to Speak Truth and Be Bold for $3.99. Click here to get your copy today. I hope it inspires you to take bold action.

Today, we can take a stand and commit to mobilize ourselves in waging justice to create our country and our world as a place where social, economic, racial, gender, and environmental justice flourish forward.

We can finally recreate our government to be authentically functioning by the people, for the people.

All of our lives, our children’s lives, and the potential future generations, literally depend upon our courage to take bold and transformative action now.

BAM. BAM. NOW-NOW. Take action.

CREA for a Better World

Just what is CREA and why am I writing about it about so often? 

It’s a good question, one I’ll answer in this post. But first, let me ask you a question: Did you happen to catch the World Series? 

Of course, as a resident in the Washington, D.C. area I couldn’t avoid it. The city was galvanized by a baseball team winning it all against all odds. It was fun and brought a lot of good cheer.

But it’s still a game.

What if the entire city of Washington, D.C. came together to win the biggest battle facing humanity today? What if the entire country could be on the same team, working with others around the world to ensure this miraculous blue, green ball of life keeps on providing a safe and secure home for humanity for generations to come? 

Now that would be a celebration, right? 

Well, that’s exactly what we’re going to do. I know this because earlier in my career the world faces another perilous threat. The AIDS epidemic was spreading around the world killing millions. We needed a collaborative, innovative, large-scale effort to alter the course of the disease.

And we did it. In the process, we saved 32 million lives! 

So here we go again. We’re going to save humanity, and we’re going to do it by securing large-scale support for CREA. 

 

CREA: a bold solution for a critical problem

For the past several months I’ve had the privilege to work as a senior policy advisor with the Foundation for Climate Restoration who is leading the global effort on Climate Restoration Emergency Action, or CREA.

We can return atmospheric CO2 to safe pre-industrial levels by 2030 and restore Arctic ice to prevent permafrost melt and the resulting disastrous methane emissions. Climate restoration legislation and investment will remove carbon from the air, spur clean energy investment and help reverse the impacts of climate change.

Climate Restoration is the global endeavor to return the Earth’s climate systems to a proven safe state in which humanity and our natural world evolved.

Climate restoration won’t be easy — in fact, it will be the most challenging endeavor humanity has ever undertaken — but it can and urgently must be done, as fast as possible.

 

Join a worldwide movement of change

We launched Build A Movement 2020 to provide grassroots support for these game-changing initiatives.

Step 7- Mobilize for the future This is not a one-time effort

A march is an event. It’s a rallying point. It’s a start. But it’s not the solution. To be effective, even a march with millions of people all filling the streets in every region of the world, must to into a movement. 

And a movement can’t happen without you. 

Building a Movement 2020 is this movement, one where justice-hearted people are joining forces, in a fusion of solidarity for the purpose of making the impossible, possible. Build A Movement 2020 can usher in a more just and peaceful world. 

We are committed to ensuring that the next U.S. President and Congress shares our commitment to critical steps change. We are committed to holding the next U.S. government accountable for bold and transformative action. 

Our movement platform centers around five resolute pillars, each with a clarion call to action. 

BAM 2020’s five pillars are: 

CLIMATE RESTORATION: We call FOR RAPID CLIMATE RESTORATION and TRANSITION TO 100% CLEAN RENEWABLE ENERGY to ensure our planet is habital for future generations. Investments in clean energy will create jobs, upgrade our infrastructure and generate economic opportunity while confronting our current climate emergency. 

SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT: We call for the U.S. to join the rest of the world with a commitment to bold action in support of the “Sustainable Development Goals” (SDGs) and the “Paris Climate Accord” — the world’s ambitious agendas for achieving social, economic, environmental, gender and racial justice by 2030. 

ENDING CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE: We call on all parents, families, guardians, teachers, coaches, clergy, and leaders in society, to break the code of silence regarding sexual abuse and incest. We call on these individuals to create safe spaces for survivors and to assist them in revealing as well as healing from their hidden trauma. Together, we will create a global and inclusive healing movement.

HEALTH AND GENDER EQUALITY: We call for gender equality, mental health programs, universal health care programs of prevention, and universal care for all Americans. Furthermore,  we call for the support of global efforts to end HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria, and other infectious disease epidemics.

RESTORE DEMOCRACY: We call for major reforms of our political system to ensure fairness, freedom, and justice for all. We call for innovative solutions that can be deployed to address low voter turnout, gerrymandering, and campaign finance rules.  Additionally, we also call for the deployment of solutions that will assist in the combating of firearms violence, racially-biased voter suppression, and mass incarceration. 

On Sept 19, we joined the world to march for climate justice. Now, we ask you to join us in our continued movement toward justice for all. We will “Build a Movement 2020” to restore our government being run “by the people, for the people,” instead of  “by the greedy, for the greedy.”
