Build Power, Take Action, Create Change

Build power, take action, create change was the overarching theme for today at the Creating Change conference in Atlanta.  David and I had a full day of immersing ourselves in learning how activists around the nation are engaged in this work.  I attended a day long institute on Funding Our Collective Liberation aimed at strengthening and deepening our social justice fundraising skills and analysis.

There are over 3,000 activists attending this conference!  No that isn't a typo, 3,000!  Can you imagine all that passion and excitement in one ballroom.  Electrifying!

Time to call it a night as David and I will be giving a workshop on disability rights and LGBTQ movements tomorrow with Peri Jude Radecic, Arizona Center for Disability Law and Tia Nelis from the University of Illinois, Chicago.

In solidarity,

David Frye
