I believe that a movement is as strong as the relationships that hold it together.
But social change organizations often operate under a lot of stress. And that can make it very hard to raise your voice above the noise -- much less connect, influence, and collaborate.
I've seen how differences within social change organizations turn into cultures of mistrust, disrespect, and burn out.
But our diversity is also our greatest strength. Together, we can do better. We can be stronger. We can be unstoppable.
And we begin with a single, liberating conversation.
