The Main Street Forum NC™ is a free educational and social public service. The forum does not endorse the opinions of presenters. Its only role is to facilitate events aimed at achieving the below stated objectives.
- Creating forums accessible to all
- Finding common ground through discussion, recognition, and understanding
- Generating local, grass roots, do-it-yourself solutions
- To educate ourselves about local issues affecting us, and inspire people to turn ideas into action
Like Occupy, TEA Party, and many other groups, the Main Street Forum NC™ is a response to the disastrous economic and social conditions of our times. At the root of these problems are the powers who benefit from the status quo, and more importantly, the rest of us who have failed to put appropriate checks on those powers. The question we aim to address is, how can we as citizens — of this town, city, country, world — do our duties to correct the abuses that have led to our current situation? …and is it possible to enjoy ourselves in the process?
Main Street Forum NC™ will be conducting discussion forums at local restaurants, social and service clubs, community and professional organizations – “Socializing with a Purpose” – as well as using this website to facilitate ongoing discussions and coordinate putting actionable items participants decide to pursue into effect. Posts, comments and forum entries on this website are moderated. Main Street Forum NC™ will endeavor to fact check entries on this website or note those that cannot be confirmed. See About Us for more details.
