Recognizing that we each have a responsibility for individual action and that we have opportunities to collaborate for a bigger impact is a start.  Please note: individual action will mean very different things to different people.  Collaboration is an opportunity and while we want more collaboration the choice to engage is individual.  When the choice to collaborate for change is made, we strategize and then we move to action.
