Last Thursday, I had the pleasure of attending @libertyhillfoundation
Upton Sinclair Awards Dinner honoring leaders on the battleground for change. The sold-out gala celebrated Congressman John Lewis in his fight against Civil Rights injustices, and a woman I am grateful to know, Liz Levitt Hirsch, whose philanthropic work has empowered communities through the performing arts. (When Liz posed the question of whether music can instill hope, all attendees raised their hands in agreement. Learn more about her work through the @levittfoundation
Both activists delivered thought-provoking calls to action reminding us that we can all do our part to make the world a more just place - no matter how humble our beginnings may be. (How humorous was @repjohnlewis
' anecdote on poultry farming in Alabama!) "Justice begins at home," was a common thread throughout the evening re-iterating the notion that to transform our communities, we must begin with ourselves. A stirring evening indeed!
What social causes ignite the flame in you? How can you spread goodness?
