Community is about building and encouraging strong relationships. Every person has a worthwhile contribution to make and we should treat all endeavors and efforts with respect and courtesy.
With twenty years of non-profit experience working on sustainability issues, I currently focus my time, efforts, and energy as a:
US Poverty Grassroots Expansion Associate and Group Leader for RESULTS;
Contributing Editor (Education) to MOMentumNation;
Champion Mentor/Advocate for the United Nations Foundation Shot@Life program;
White House as a Champion of Change (Parents on Education, 2011)
Productive and positive relationships are the key to enacting change. It's where we center ourselves that really counts, about who helps us when we feel that life is spinning out of control. It's about giving the best of yourself under any circumstance and making every moment of the day matter. Let's work together to establish solid roots so that we can all help each other take flight.
As Thoreau said, "be not simply good-but be good for something."
