It does not stop here...

I had a fun time learning... exploring.. and growing in the social justice movement. It was great meeting folks and also building connection to enhance what things I can do to expand the non-profit work that I do. I am so glad that IT DOESN'T STOP HERE @ THE FORUM...

Alot of time...I find organizers gathering so much information @ conferences but never utilize it and wonder why they are frustrated with their work. It is very important that we do not become stuck in time in our social justice work but forever growing, expanding, learning, listening, building leadership in the community and empowering the people/community we work with that THEY CAN DO IT.... It is SOOOO important to stay updated on your issues and solutions that can help your community... such conferences as the USSF is important to stay educated and not become distress and burnout.

Some Personal reflections from the conference...

1. Surround yourself with people who care and love you inspite of your faults.
2. Stay encourage!!!
3. Be committed
4. It is easier to say "I can't do it" but more beneficial if "I can do it"..
5. Stop complaining... and be apart of the solution...
6. To give wholeheartedly
7. Keep your word and be accountable for your actions

This has been a pleasure... Folks please keep in touch...
