Tired of Giving In


On a day when the news on Afghanistan makes us tilt into a sense of
powerlessness, let us celebrate Rosa Parks, who on this day in 1955
refused to give up her seat on the bus for a white man, thus changing
history. The Rosa and Raymond Parks Institute for Self Development continues her legacy.

"I believe that everyone can make a difference in their lives." - Rosa Parks

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site. We don't survive on clicks. We don't want advertising dollars. We want the world to be a better place. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do.
