Wednesday Wisdom- Ode To A Kick Ass Activist

Light the fire…. fight the fight.

 

This week my video is an ode to all of you kick ass activist. Some days we get lost in doing stuff…completing tasks, answering emails and prepping for meetings. Today I want you to connect back to that source. The passion that brought you here. The reason that you do this work. . You want to be successful and  you want communities to be healthy and whole ?- Well it takes hard work, digging deep, making hard choices and calling people, institutions  and systems out.  You cannot shrink. You cannot whisper.

Take it personally….. Every program, every employee, every donor….  The work demands it. Your communities deserve it.
