When speaking out, “remember you’re not going up there alone. Bring your ancestors, bring the spirits of all your coaches. It’s not just you, it’s you and everyone who has ever poured into you, it’s you and your coaches, it’s you and your grandparents, it’s you and your ancestors you never met.
We were honored and excited to reconnect with our colleague Rev. Malando Redeemer, who stressed the importance of rooting all aspects of community organization, self-transformation and social change in love, service respect, bringing others along and staying humble.
Rev. Malando Redeemer is an Organizer at SEIU Healthcare in Tacoma, WA. He is an experienced community organizer, youth pastor and manager with a commitment to public service. He holds a Bachelor’s Degree focused in Religion from Faith International University, is an alumnus of the Institute for Community Leadership and the Martin Luther King Jr. Freedom Center.
The Freedom Center continues to turn on a dime, increasing our online classes and sessions during the shelter-in-place order. We are bringing experts from around the world with feet-on-the-ground experience in organizing, civic engagement and public service together with our youth and staff.
This is an excellent time to study the relevance and importance of transforming ourselves to make change in the world.
