For seven years members of The Coalition, Inc. have been working to build a network for community groups to increase their efficiency, effectiveness and visibility. We created News From The Coalition, Inc. to be a news organ to maintain communication, promote cooperation and inspire collaboration among entities who have the same goals. Since then we have become international, we wish that all information pertinent to the betterment of families and communities world wide be accessible to all the groups concerned. In the same spirit we have created The Coalition E-group to share information that may not make it to the weekly E-newsletter. Please accept this invitation and use this group to share your projects and concerns with other members and the general public. Access to The Coalition E-Group can be gained at http://groups.google.com/group/coalition-the The opportunity to become a member of The Coalition Board of Directors is here again.
