...discovery & action towards a just & sustainable community...
We are based in Boca Raton, Florida.
Our community is first Palm Beach County and in ever widening circles the planet.
We care particularly about
the protection and empowerment of women (and children),
working for rational public policy,
and community development.
We show up under several names, including
Network of Spiritual Progressives of Palm Beach County,
and we are active with several faith communities in matters of social justice.
