My Work
Organization Name: Small Planet Institute
Title / Position: Co-founder
Description: Frances Moore Lappé and Anna Lappé founded the Small Planet Institute in 2001 to further an historic transition: a worldwide shift from the dominant, failing notion of democracy — as something done to us or for us — toward democracy as a rewarding way of life: a culture in which citizens infuse the values of inclusion, fairness and mutual accountability into all dimensions of public life.
