Back to School

Last week, I was at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University for the beginning of what will be a yearlong course of study. For five days, my cohort and I were immersed in academic study, skill building, peer learning and radical self-inquiry. Among the many professors who taught us was the legendary community organizing “guru” Marshall Ganz, who worked alongside Martin Luther King in 1964, devoted 16 years to the United Farm Workers led by Cesar Chavez, and is credited with devising the grassroots fundraising model used in 2008 by Barack Obama. I am so grateful for my new community of worldwide leaders and their generosity of wisdom and warmth.
