The MinaCommUnity Initiative

MISSION

Dedicated to building a planetary response to climate change through effective journalism and a simplified approach model that evokes, inspires, and asserts action.

ABOUT
The man-made climate crisis is a monstrous undertaking. Phasing out carbon
fossil fuels globally remains the biggest challenge we face in this climate fight. A transition of this scale will take many years. Meanwhile, there has to be more we can do collectively as a society to help reduce carbon emissions more rapidly. I believe there is. I call it organized collective restraint. Simple; because we all have the means. Further details on this concept will be shared in an upcoming op-ed by Mina Rios, to be submitted to the mass media in early 2024.

The MinaCommUnity Initiative has highly ambitious intentions.
partnerships and collaborations with groups interested in partaking in the simplified approach model to further the initiative. Inquiries welcome from all parts of the globe.

August Dance Awareness Month
ADAM Initiative

MISSION

To create more dialogue in local dance communities; educate the public about funding limitations; and stimulate year-round dance performance patronage.

ABOUT
Mina Communications launched the August Dance Awareness Month campaign/initiative (ADAM) in San Diego in 2008. Aimed at stimulating local interest in dance, Mina Communications partnered with Dance San Diego Magazine to create an open/ongoing dialogue with the local dance community and establish partnerships with neighboring businesses and non-profits to help strengthen campaign efforts. Inspired by Eveoke Dance Theatre's 3-day Celebrate Dance Festival (CDF), held each August in San Diego's Balboa Park, ADAM would become an extension of Eveoke's weekend event, whereby performances, workshops, dance film presentations, and mixers would be held throughout the month of August. The launch of ADAM was very well-received among local media, businesses, the dance community, and Congresswoman Susan Davis, who kindly provided a written endorsement for the ADAM campaign/initiative (shown below).
