Groundswell News Journal

We have a brand new and wonderful website created by Ngo Banfogha of Hope for a Better Future Cameroon. Please visit us at He has transferred everything from here to there and added a LOT more information. Our organizations have been working together for over two years. Hope for a Better Future has been doing amazing work and the Grassroots Coalition’s newspaper (Groundswell News Journal) has been publishing their stories since May 2019. Ngo is on the Grassroots Coalition Board of Directors and is coaching other African members of the Coalition and me (Iona) about fundraising, while we Americans learn more about Africans and their needs. We are doing exciting things with our team members in Africa, India, and the U.S. Our new website will bring you up to date. The latest issue of Groundswell News Journal is posted there. Thank you for checking in with us.

The Grassroots Coalition for Environmental and Economic Justice was founded in 1990 by John and Iona Conner with a mission of “creating the critical mass of active participants needed to bring ecological justice to this Earth by providing information and resources to individuals which encourage and assist them to make lifestyle  changes beneficial to the environment and to promote and facilitate group activities, which effectively grapple with local and global environmental concerns.”
