Inspiration for small civil actions to foster positive democratic change

About Us

LittleHingesUSA is based on the quote by W. Clement Stone (1902-2002)

“Little Hinges Swing Big Doors”

Started on November 11, 2016, is a group of like-minded individuals who work  both independently and together to identify and participate in actions centered around civil liberties for all. It serves to encourage people, particularly women, to find ways that are affordable, meaningful and encourage positive action.

This site dedicated to little acts that can be taken on key fronts to keep the needle sharp or moving in the right direction, particularly during times when it seems we may be moving backwards instead of forwards. It is designed to be participatory, with different people able to take different actions that suit their budgets, core principles and key desired initiatives.  If you’re so inclined:

This is a chance to participate and take action rather than stew in anger, cringe in fear or feel unhinged. If you’d like to contribute a blog, help administer a platform, provide graphics, or suggest topics, please contact us. Have a different idea of how you’d like to contribute to our growing community? Write us!

The goal is to empower regular citizens to find small ways they can take action within their current means both in terms of budget and time. If you are interested in participating in any way, please write to and suggest how we can put your unique talents to best use, or just suggest ideas we can improve. All positions are volunteer only.
