I attended this event last night at CUNY Graduate Center on 5th. Ami Dar, Idealist's Executive Director spoke about their new Idealist Network, which hopes to be a movement and if anyone can galvanize people who want to better the world, why not them? It helps that they have a good motivator in Ami Dar too. New York is the pilot project city. Folks who attended last night were all over the map, from artists to humanitarians to people who just want to save Victorian housing in upstate New York. Take a look and if you're inspired, they want you.
