What if the ladder is leaning against the wrong wall?

“Somewhere along the way we all have bought into this myth that working harder for justice, removing barriers to inequity, and deeply analyzing policies are enough to transform our society.

These policies simply don’t get at the deeper, more fundamental issues that plague our movements for justice.

Trust, vision, wholeness, humane relationships, and hope, are the real lifeline of movement building.

This means working on self transformation, healing, hopefulness, and cultivating a vision of possibility.

Yet these spaces do not exist in our work as we now know it. As a result, this absence has been the Achilles’ heel of our efforts to engage in social change in a deeper way.”
