Our lives–with all our joy and woundedness–are a powerful source of inspiration for social change. Whether we know the pain of childhood abuse, racial isolation and violence, intimate gender violence or poverty and discrimination, these experiences become our greatest resource in our journey to becoming warriors for change. At the same time, our experiences of love, belonging, community and joy shape our visions of social justice and drive our commitment to building a world we want to live in.


I encourage you to build a life’s work that involves both a deep and courageous encounter with your own truth, and a beloved community that can kindle and sustain your passion for justice. I hope that you find something here that inspires you on that journey.
