SAFE G: Empowering Resilient Communities


Mission. To empower local communities to design immediate and effective SAFE G solutions that implement optical fiber wired to the home and office. Local taxpayers and ratepayers are entitled to this alternative to wireless, because they have already paid for it. Please see: Irregulators v. FCC.

5G/AI/Internet of Things Juggernaut presents an imminent threat. The harms to our community’s physical and mental health, the local environment, violations of citizen’s rights to due process, property, and personal privacy are foreseeable and preventable. The threat is especially dangerous to our children, elderly people, those with special sensitivities, disabled persons with chronic illnesses, caregivers, and our economically disadvantaged and minority communities that have no escape in their homes or workplaces.

Remedy: Community Empowerment: An effective remedy begins with widespread education and training in a proven system of wise leadership, community organization, team building, and negotiation. With this purpose we have created a 5G Dojo to support local communities around the world that are facing similar challenges. The key is to share negotiation successes and practical experience, so these lessons can be immediately deployed within the network. Equally essential is to fortify community-wide resilience rapidly and effectively. (See: 5 Minutes toResilience)

Our Funding Goal: $ 100,000

Non-Profit Organizations

Santa Barbara has nearly 800 non-profit organizations, about 20% of which are directly or indirectly concerned with community health, wellness, and vitality. Most of them are in competition for scarce wealth capital in order to survive. This is a dysfunctional 20th century model that impairs community resilience and needs to be changed. A better model is to encourage collaboration among these non-profit organizations and to reward them for doing so.

Santa Barbara has nearly 800 non-profit organizations, about 20% of which are directly or indirectly concerned with community health, wellness, and vitality. Most of them are in competition for scarce wealth capital in order to survive. This is a dysfunctional 20th century model that impairs community resilience and needs to be changed. A better model is to encourage collaboration among these non-profit organizations and to reward them for doing so with HSPs. The same logic applies to the foundations themselves. Just as it is in their interest to motivate collaboration among non-profit organizations, they will enhance their own organizational resilience by collaborating under an emerging new model of philanthropic collaboration. If Santa Barbara’s foundations begin to move in this direction, it is further likely their success will attract new sources of philanthropic capital that will be impressed by the positive health, social, and economic outcomes of Santa Barbara’s innovative experiment.
