Windcall helps community and labor organizers be resilient, practice transformative leadership, & improve the vitality of social movements.
If you've been organizing for years, you can reach a moment when stepping back from the work can be the VERY best thing you can do for it. I was one of those organizers this year when I was awarded a Windcall Residency. It was an amazing and transformative experience for me that I think every organizer should have.
That's why I'm hoping you’ll join me in giving to Windcall, especially since three donors are matching every dollar you give by Saturday, December 8th, up to $13,000.
Like the clear blue lake that I had the privilege of seeing out my window everyday during my residency at the Blue Mountain Center in the Adirondacks - Windcall affirmed the importance of clarity to me. Of focus, balance, self-care; and the crucial importance of soul nourishing endeavours such as music and art as vital ingredients in creating a sustainable and engaged life.
Movements are only as good as the resiliency and the vision of those within them.Windcall is there for organizers of color, organizers working in low-income communities, and organizers working under all kinds of conditions all over the country. And Windcall plans to grow to support organizers with coaching and other supports to help them move ahead after their Residencies AND to inspire resiliency and transformative leadership practices throughout our movements.
My sincere salamat (thanks) to other Windcall Residents who have passed away but continue to inspire me - Joannie Chang and Eric Quezada; and the many others whose inspiring leadership and support remain sources of strength for me. And to the many future Windcall Residents, who surely will benefit tremendously from this invaluable opportunity.
Please give and help me meet my goal and Windcall meet the match by December 8th.
