You are leaders in your organizations and your communities. You are advocates, tirelessly working for justice and peace. If you alone could wave a magic wand and create the policies and practices we’ve been talking about here on JustFutures, you would have done it ages ago. These kinds of organizational changes are not easy and often come slowly. They can happen! But it takes more than you alone. (I mean, you are SUPER awesome, but everyone needs a little help from their friends from time to time).
We’ve heard that sometimes those who have a stake in your organization don’t always make the important connections that investing in advocates, staff and the workplace (Good Jobs!) absolutely supports excellent services to survivors and the community. Take a look at this short video we created to help start those conversations with your boards and community donors and stakeholders. What do you think? How might you use this in your work?
