Wendy Lewis blogs here. She has also put up CivicMind, a dictionary and resource for "civic-minded, service-oriented, socially-responsible, and philanthropically-inclined people." These include, along with philanthropists:
- Nonprofit leaders and volunteers
- Social entrepreneurs
- National service participants
- Service-learning educators and college students
- Corporate responsibility directors
- Foundation officers and philanthropists
- Everyday citizens improving their communities
Here is her definition of "Social Justice," under S in her dictionary:
an individual's concern for the needs of society as a whole and not simply those of oneself or one's family; recognition that caring about, and being responsive to, the needs of others is a moral obligation and an integral part of the practice of citizenship.
What a fine writer she is. What a fine public spirited person shines through work. I only wish every teenager in America, let alone every adult, were schooled in her "dictionary" and committed to service as a citizen, in whatever way complements and completes their lives as consumer, voter, and employee.
