I struggled with how to devise an appropriate introduction to this blog.  There are a number of business models out there that have very specific instructions on what I am to do.  They do not, however, appeal to me, nor my sense of what I wish to accomplish here.  And, I imagine, that what I wish to achieve will change and shift over time.

For now, I will begin in the glorious charge of trial and error.  I will lay out thoughts on the anti-oppression work I facilitate, and contemplations pertaining to social justice issues.  Some of these posts will directly reference organizational work, while others will be personal reflections on anti-oppression concepts.  Some will be a cross between the two.  I bid you welcome to my site.

 

If we can recognize that change and uncertainty are basic principles, we can greet the future and the transformation we are undergoing with the understanding that we do not know enough to be pessimistic.
