The formation of Common Fire Beacon-Newburgh was catalyzed by a vision document created by Common Fire Foundation. In the words of the original creators:
“This vision document lays out our perspective on the state of the world and the critical ways people must come together to create something different. It presents a vision for the creation of transformational intentional communities nationwide and documents key characteristics that can help those communities be catalysts for broader change.
This is a living document. It’s been revised many times based on the feedback of hundreds of people and it is continually being worked on. You may notice portions that are clearly in draft form. We welcome your feedback.”
