Inductees to JCJ, 2020!

We present to you:

Esteemed Inductees to the Jimmy Carter Jamboree Grassroots Movement, 2020!

As we head into our next election cycle, we have the opportunity to pause and celebrate values, those we wish to live by. We all have been moving so fast these last years, isn’t it worth the time to stop and ponder – what is it all about? What IS life all about? And who have been examples providing us all inspiration?

The month of October offers powerhouse birthdays in our age, beginning with October 1 which is the day of President Jimmy Carter’s 96th birthday, our oldest president ever, one who has shown us the value of living with humility, kindness and vision – a peace keeper who has walked the talk! His greatest role was in 1981 when he became, once again, “we, the people.”

Do you have a citizen to nominate to our page? One catch, their birthday MUST be in October and share with us why they inspire you as “we , the people” Please keep it peace loving and in the spirit of good, creative activism or whatever else rocks your boat within that Carter spirit.

Remember, this is grassroots, for the people AND BY THE PEOPLE, coming straight to you from Robin Hood’s namesake “Sherwood,” in the town of Fairfax, California where music lovers, artists and activists believe in fairness and facts. . .and love and peace!

October 1
President Jimmy Carter, the one and only The peacekeeper who set the stage for this month long rock ‘n roll tribute for good values, an event “by the people, for the people.” Jimmy Carter and his values remind all of us why life is worth living and our power as the people. Don’t forget,  his greatest role was in 1981 when he became, once again, a citizen of the United States! What’s more, in his presentation with Bob Dylan, Carter said “musicians have far greater power than any president of the United States!” Thank you, Carter!

John Lennon – IMAGINE – what else can one say that has not been said? ”
“Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people living for today
Imagine there’s no countries, It isn’t hard to do . .
