The following announcement was published in the May-June 2017 issue of NewsNotes. 

The world political order is shifting. It is more important than ever that we shine light in dark places and  promote alternative economic systems to create a more inclusive, equitable, and sustainable world.

We are excited to offer you our newly redesigned monthly e-newsletter, Encounters. Read it online at 

Each issue of Encounters features the challenges posed by the current economic growth paradigm and shines light on the hopeful ways communities are responding to protect human dignity and God’s beautiful Creation.

Encounters is timely – Sign up to receive a new issue by email on the 15th of each month.

Encounters is concise – You can print the two-page PDF version to share with your community.

Encounters is unique – Learn about real actions people are taking now to meet their needs for social justice, environmental sustainability, and alternative economics. The issue for April introduced the solidarity economy in Brazil and highlights a women's collective there. Don't miss the excellent video.
