YES! Presents: Personal Journeys
As we work collectively to build a better world, each of us is on a unique path. But we can find inspiration and insight from the stories of others.
Watch YES! racial justice editor Sonali Kolhatkar in conversation with three contributors to our “Personal Journeys” issue. You can also view a transcript of the event here.
You’ll hear from:
- Ruth King, whose story starts with a dream so powerful that it set her on a life-long journey “from rage to mindfulness.” Now a psychologist, educator, and founder of the Mindful of Race Institute, King shares wisdom that can help us all examine systems, navigate emotional distress, and increase social harmony.
- Shawn Ginwright, whose new book, The Four Pivots: Reimagining Justice, Reimagining Ourselves, explores three myths that we all have about social change, and four pivots that can help us “transform our organizations and reimagine our work for social change by first transforming and reimagining ourselves.”
- Rachel Powell Horne, a climate writer who stopped flying and learned to find joy in simple pleasures after meeting “a very special hitchhiker” who became her husband—and then noticed how those choices seemed to ripple outward.
