DISCOVER LIVING DEMOCRACY
Frances Moore Lappé, author of nineteen books starting with the
3-million copy Diet for a Small Planet, is a “frame-changer.” A recipient of 19 honorary doctorates, Lappé is cofounder of the Small Planet Institute and two other national organizations. She publishes and speaks widely, calling us to rethink our challenges in ways that empower action.
Her book EcoMind reframes limiting messages of the environmental movement, and her newest book, Daring Democracy, written with millennial Adam Eichen, awakens readers to a largely invisible Democracy Movement offering each of us greater voice, meaning, and connection. The Small Planet Institute is an exciting hub for rethinking democracy and finding our place in this historic movement.
Read Frances Moore Lappé and Adam Eichen's "Daring Democracy," a bold take on America's democracy crisis with powerful solutions for regular citizens to get involved.
“This book, perhaps better than any other, shows Americans that the democracy they want is possible.”
—Lawrence Lessig, Harvard Law School, Author of Republic, Lost
“Now, more than ever, to save our democracy, every American needs to read Daring Democracy.”
—Ann Ravel, Former Chair of Federal Elections Commission
SUPPORT OUR MISSION
Small Planet Institute spreads an empowering understanding of democracy as the wide dispersion of power, transparency in public affairs, and a culture of mutual accountability. We call it Living Democracy, enabling each of us to act effectively on emerging solutions from electoral politics and economic life to the environment, hunger, agriculture, and beyond.
Our goal is thus a future where all communities are thriving with dignity as Living Democracies, fulfilling our essential needs for personal power, meaning, and connection.
ABOUT SMALL PLANET INSTITUTE
At the Small Planet Institute, we believe that ideas have enormous power. So we seek to identify core, often unspoken, assumptions—economic, political, and psychological—now driving humanity to take our planet in directions that none of us individually would ever choose. In addressing this tragedy, Small Planet focuses on solutions: From the crisis of needless hunger to that of democracy itself, we offer evidence-based, life-serving frames of understanding and stories of possibility to enable all of us to perceive and join in solutions emerging everywhere.
“Every aspect of our lives is, in a sense, a vote for the kind of world we want to live in.” - Frances Moore Lappé
