At the Outreach Committee meeting on Sept. 27, we took time to reflect on our first exposure to or awareness of social justice issues, advocacy work, or activism.
I'd like to invite everyone reading this to pause for a moment and think back. Was there a person or event that first raised your awareness?
I'll go first...my second grade teacher got my class involved in raising money for the protection of baby harp seals that were being hunted in the Arctic. We canvassed the lunchroom asking for donations. It was my first awareness that I could do something to help a problem that was geographically far away from me, and also my first awareness that other people would help if asked.
What's your story?
