- Move-On.org = Democracy in Action
The MoveOn family of organizations brings real Americans back into the political process. With 5 million members across America — from carpenters to stay-at-home moms to business leaders – we work together to realize the progressive promise of our country. MoveOn is a service — a way for busy but concerned citizens to find their political voice in a system dominated by big money and big media.
The MoveOn family of organizations is made up of a couple of different pieces. MoveOn.org Civic Action, a 501(c)(4) nonprofit organization, formerly known just as MoveOn.org, primarily focuses on education and advocacy on important national issues. MoveOn.org Political Action, a federal PAC, formerly known as MoveOn PAC, mobilizes people across the country to fight important battles in Congress and help elect candidates who reflect our values. Both organizations are entirely funded by individuals.
Every member has a voice in choosing the direction for both MoveOn.org Political Action and MoveOn.org Civic Action. Using our ActionForum software, you can propose priorities and strategies. Both organizations also take the initiative to organize quick action on other timely issues that our members care about.

- Prophets Conference for the Rebirthing of a New Humanity
Welcome to The Great Rethinking and The Prophets Conference, an international organization dedicated to assisting in the birthing of a new humanity, and thereby, the realization of the successful cultivation of a sustainable and workable world.
Unprecedented changes and challenges are facing the people of this world and we see these as a birthing process leading towards a tipping point for a personal and planetary renaissance.
The Prophets Conference programs, with many of today's trailblazing teachers, are designed to cultivate spiritual principles and scientific potentials, invoking oneness and deeper experiences for those who participate in this growing community.
Working to integrate expansive perspectives, and prompting discovery, beauty and understanding, The Prophets Conference looks to be of service for the creation of the direct knowing of the love filled eternal present moment in which we all abide.
It is a guiding premise of our organization that a holistic inclusive approach opening to and encompassing all the diverse avenues of life will help create healing, health, coherence, and more meaning. Many ancient and modern teachings are offered and combined to help shed pathologies growing from narcissism, fundamentalism, and materialism.
While stimulating active participation in meaningful change and creative expression in all life’s endeavors, The Prophets Conference encourages the spirit of positive emotions through learned happiness and the granting of permission to just be positive and awash in the plentitude of being. Grasping the interconnectedness of all things, together we learn to live in wonder, appreciation, awareness, and wholeness. We invite you to join this creative adventure.

- Alaska Wilderness League
- Alaska's wild lands -- specifically the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge -- are under attack. This extraordinary treasure trove of lands, set aside decades ago to be protected now and in the future for the benefit of the American people, is in severe danger of being destroyed forever by short-sighted politicians and the extractive industries. They want only the resources these pristine areas can provide, regardless of the resulting devastation to the habitat, wildlife, and cultures. The Alaska Wilderness League is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation founded in 1993 to further the protection of Alaska's incomparable natural endowment. To learn about who's who at the Alaska Wilderness League, visit our staff or board of directors listings.

- Max Perkoff Music
- Max is a wonderful Bay Area musician I get to work with (not often enough) who really has opened my eyes to a greater appreciation of and desire for playing live jazz music again. Thanks, Max!
- Thousands of independent artists like myself have found a home at CD Baby - stop in and browse for music you will NEVER find at Tower. Search by style, artist, genre, or "sounds like" -- you'll find many treasures.
