The Free Manual For The Umbrella Project Is Here, Willing Hands Needed

     The Project Do Better manifesto is a manual for community organizers which proposes  a long term plan that they can modify for their own communities, and use to work together with other projects and communities to help build a unified movement for the Common Good.
     The book,  Project Do Better: Enough For All, in Four Phases (isbn 9798201715922), comes in various sizes of PDF, as an epub, and as a mobi file from the stores that would allow me to set the price to Free, meaning that Amazon and the library systems, which require a minimum price well above that, did not allow me to publish through them.  Note that I personally prefer the ePub, since most PDF readers on the phone are not capable of showing the thumbnails or bookmarks that bring up the left hand side Table of Contents in the published PDF, so if  you will be reading it on a cell phone without an eBook Reader, you may prefer the draft 9 pdf, which has the Table of Contents inside the document .  I can download and send about 20 different sizes of PDF upon request:
    Draft2Digital says that the distribution is now also included on Smashwords, so that should also make the epub and mobi versions even more easily accessible in a few months or so.
    I still need a logo for the project, and help with getting the word out about this project, from all willing hands.  I plan to start sending a copy of the book to each person cited in the notes, page by page, and then to look for communities and organizers who might be interested in collaborating with the project, or using the book as a starting point for their own long term planning.  I will happily send the editable version of this book to communities wishing to modify it and publish their own versions of this plan.

    1. This book, meant for use by community organizers, builds on systems critiques with action item sets which lay out a vision of a world described by FDR’s Four Freedoms. It reiterates Dr. King’s call for a Citizen’s Income with updated planning and a pathway to get there. Suggestions for new ways to solve the housing and homeless crises over the next 70 years offer new models for participatory and engaged local and national democracy.
