Social change doesn’t occur without MOVEMENT.
We can’t rely on others to fix our nation’s problems because WE are the OTHERS. Change won’t happen without ordinary people and communities standing in unison to demand DEMOCRATIC PRACTICES / EQUITY / JUSTICE / ACCOUNTABILITY and FREEDOM.
When “we, the people” are unhealthy, struggling, marginalized, uneducated, and vulnerable, it’s harder to organize for social change. It’s harder to organize for equity, and it’s harder to exercise power. We need strong, healthy, and educated communities where historically marginalized people have equitable access to power, resources, and legal protection.
When the most vulnerable in our society are lifted up, we ALL win. We ALL benefit. You can help bring about this vision by getting involved in a number of ways.
