All are welcome to hear Chuck Collins, an heir to a business fortune who gave away his wealth, speak on potential solutions of inequality in our society. Collins, who shared his views last month on NPR’s Marketplace, will be at the Unitarian Church of Marlborough and Hudson on Sunday, Feb. 12.
Changing the Story, Fixing the Future: Understanding the Stories that Perpetuate Inequality & Hold Us Back
We are living between two worlds. There is the world we have always known, but realize now has deep system flaws like extreme inequality, climate change, and global instability. And there is the future world, one that we can have a hand in shaping. What are the stories and narratives that hold the old system in place? And what are the possibilities for transforming the future? Can we create a new narrative and new ways of engaging socially, economically, and politically? And how can we leverage our own personal gifts to aid this changemaking process?

But he’s come to appreciate the power of “coming home” and committing to place as an essential ingredient in reducing inequality and the transition to more equal and resilient communities.
