Many of you attended our extraordinary Sister Giant event in November of 2012, where we grounded ourselves in a new conversation regarding women, non-violence and the birth of a new American politics. I have heard from scores of people about actions they’ve taken since that weekend, to step up their participation in social and political issues.
I will be giving a day-long seminar called The New Activism: Combining Spirit and Action as a part of the international RESULTS conference in Washington D.C. this July. It takes the Sister Giant conversation one step further, and gives those on the East Coast easier access to our work.
RESULTS is an amazing organization. As a board member of the organization, I am very proud of the amazing work they do in helping to create the political will to end the worst ravages of hunger and poverty throughout the world.
I hope you will join me for this amazing combination of Sister Giant and RESULTS! I see participation in the RESULTS Conference as a great step forward in creating a broader social force for good on the planet. The more we learn about the scourge of poverty and how we ourselves can make a difference, the more empowered we are in our role as citizens with conscience.
