Small Planet Institute
Founding and Mission
Small Planet Institute is a nonprofit organization founded by Frances Moore Lappé and Anna Lappé in 2001. Its mission is "to help define, articulate, and further an historic transition: a worldwide shift from the dominant, failing notion of democracy as a set of fixed institutions toward democracy understood as a way of life, a culture in which the values of inclusion, fairness and mutual accountability infuse all dimensions of public life."  This mission is carried out mainly through public outreach using books, articles, speeches, and other media.
