Be The Change

Working together we can achieve your aspirations in 2020!


Advancing Social Justice in the Moment

The work of peace and social justice is the obligation of all of us, regardless of our age, background, occupation, nationality, political views, economic situation, race, gender or ethnicity. The death of George Floyd in Minnesota reminds us that as a collective community we have the duty to remedy injustices that limit people of color and those who are marginalized because of structural and cultural barriers and oppression. Those of us who are privileged by class, education, or economics must recognized that to some degree we attained our status at the expense of others. We must listen with compassion and an open heart to those who cry out right now, and more importantly, take risk – often against our own interests – to rectify past wrongs and create a future for all that that is just, fair, equal, and peaceful.

We need to encourage peaceful, yet meaningful, change at this time. The Peace and Justice Studies Association has collected various resources that can be considered. The International Center on Nonviolent Conflict advances nonviolent civil change. If you are DC based and looking for training, consider the work of DC Peace Team. And I was part of a program hosted by the Rockville, Maryland Human Rights Commission in 2017 that looked at nonviolent change. See my blog listing additional resources.


I work with organizations, businesses, not for profits, and educational institutions looking to make change and advance their objectives. Find out about consulting.
