Group-E formed in early 2017 with a sudden and extremely unexpected desire to "Do Something." We're a coalition of friends, neighbors, book club members, coworkers, band mates, life-long friends, spouses -- all brought together under an urgent need to make a real, actual, material difference.
And we're all new to this - so we've got that going for us. Which is nice.
The original, pre-organizational survey finished with one simple question: Suggest a group name for us that is better than "Groupy McGroupface." A few suggestions came in, but Groupy McGroupface seemed to be sticking. ("I say Groupy you say Groupface!") Fortunately, someone suggested "Group-E" - where "E" can stand for Environment, Education, Equality, and all those other, good, power-E words.
Plus, who doesn't love Boaty McBoatface?
