Dear List,
I would like to echo Tree's comments.  I would also be fascinated to read about 
peace and justice issues in the context of cohousing/community life. And, I 
agree that the posting was inappropriate as a mass mailing/geographically 
specific event.   

I'm curious how the activism of members in a community affect the other 
not-so-activist members, if there is an open space created for tolerant 
discussion and dialogue, and the ripple effects that each member's passion has 
on their neighbors.  It seems a fertile ground for practicing civil discourse 
and finding connections.  A tonic for the polarization that is present in our 
political realm today.
