New Dream newsletter: Working Together, More Meaningful Holidays, and Questioning Consumption

Dear New Dreamer,

Over the past month, the daily demands from the world of news and politics have been overwhelming, to say the least. Now is the perfect time to recenter our attention on more of what matters: truth, justice, love, and equity. New Dream is refining a shift in focus to help you do just that (read all about it here), and we’re eager for your feedback. If you haven’t yet, please take our 3-minute survey to share your thoughts. Thank you!

As we enter the frenetic year-end holiday season, simplify your holidays with our timeless and useful Simplify the Holidays resources. You’ll find a multitude of ideas for creating more meaning, as well as a brand new resource to bring these ideas to others in your community. However you celebrate (or don’t), we hope this time of year is filled with warmth and joy!
