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)

Resilience and Philanthropy

A just published article in the Stanford Social Innovation Review offers a remedy in somewhat different language to fundamental problems that have beleaguered the philanthropic world for decades, including the fragmentation and misalignment of philanthropic interventions with urgent societal needs and the resulting poor results from most investments.

A just published article in the Stanford Social Innovation Review offers a remedy in somewhat different language to fundamental problems that have beleaguered the philanthropic world for decades—all of which can be described as challenges to integral resilience. They are:

  • Most giving remains relatively small and fragmented, and not aligned with what’s required for large-scale and enduring impact.
  • Investment-ready systems change efforts are rare; few social change leaders have built robust strategies, capabilities and partnerships to drive systems change, although many have the vision and ability to do so.
  • There aren’t enough efficient mechanisms for philanthropists to find and support high-potential investments, and to connect and collaborate with one another in a deep and meaningful way, especially across borders.
  • The CHME portal is focused precisely on the choke points addressed by the author in her new venture, Co-Impact: how collaborative philanthropy can scale and multiply the benefits in community health and wellness on a global level.
