transform., the journal for Transformative Social Change, is published by the Center for Transformative Change (CXC).
the latest issue of transform. can be found here: http://transform.transformativechange.org/
CXC is the first national center entirely dedicated to bridging the inner and outer lives of social change agents, activists and allies to support a more effective, more sustainable social justice movement.
We name, frame and advance Transformative Social Change by both developing practices and programs for agents of social change and working in collaboration with leading organizations to help shape this emerging movement. Most importantly, CXC reflects the field and the movement back to itself by publishing the transform. blog and monthly journal, thus strengthening our collective identity, community, and shared vision.
In January 2009, we completely redesigned and re-launched our monthly
newsletter to become: “transform.: the vision and practice of transformative
social change” to become the central vehicle for news, articles, essays and
interviews that capture the growth and breadth of the field of Transformative
From the first issue until now, transform. has connected with the
news of the current moment and related it to the importance and value of inner
work as it meets social change. Sections include monthly articles that focus on areas
from particular inner life challenges and practices that can be done to navigate
them to real-life examples of organizational impact of using transformative
practice and approaches to their work. transform has quickly become a welcome
monthly arrival in people’s inboxes with broad appeal and a growing readership:
