Nelson's 11/16/18 Update

I am sitting here today watching a cold afternoon rain, which isn’t feeling so bad after an abnormally warm fall.  And anything Nature throws my way works for me; it’s all beautiful.

We have not been good about sticking to our newsletter schedule, and for that I apologize.  I can assure you, though, it’s for good reason.  We have made exciting progress, beyond what we were envisioning even 30 days ago.  The skies have opened for us in a way we did not see coming.

We have found a partner fully aligned with our mission and values, and deep in resources, to collaborate in the launch of our community campaign model in a large city.  This effort will focus on underserved neighborhoods, demonstrating our community action model in a way that will inspire people across the country.  Our hope is to begin scaling this model to other communities next year after we get some traction with our initial project.

We are still in the early stages of this collaboration, but I should have more detail to report as early as the end of the year. 

As many of you know, we are committed to a grassroots movement strategy that will not only bring the plant-based nutrition message to more people everywhere, but also communicate important environmental, social, and political ideas.  I think it’s important to make our argument bigger; there are many issues connected with our plant-based nutrition message, and I believe we fall short when we fail to articulate these connections in a way that could inspire more people to join with us.

I also like the idea of grassroots change because I don’t believe a small group of leaders at the top, whether in the plant-based community, government, industry, or anywhere else, are the most important agents of change. We all can be agents of change given the right conditions, and when we all engage in change, that’s when transformative things can happen.

I hope you continue to stay tuned.  We have been quiet lately because we have been working hard, sometimes I think too hard, but it’s all been worth it. 

Until next time,

Nelson

So appreciate all you do, I just don’t know how you persevere. I get so discouraged when the people who most need to hear this message, want nothing to do with it, and confuse the message with the messenger.

Grassroots movements are the way we are going to take this country back from the oligarchs and the companies that are killing us with their “food” products. They, with Big Pharma, don’t stand a chance with the people finding their voices and their hearts. Keep up the good work, Nelson!

Good news Nelson! I hope you design within your overall initiative a research project with measurable outcomes that you can use for both popular-press and peer-review publications.

Best wishes to you and your whole family

Jeff

Hope all of you are doing well. We are introducing today a new newsletter format. We hope you find this easier to navigate. With this format, you can see our content at a glance and decide what you want to read. For this week’s newsletter, I would like to draw your attention to a website launched by Dr. Jamie Koufman. She has an interesting story, which you can see under the “About Us” tab at DrCampbell4Nobel.org. Dr. Koufman launched this site to draw public attention to the idea that my father should be nominated for the Nobel Prize in Medicine.
