Why do you engage?

The greatest changes in our own lives and in our own society start with the best, most insightful and penetrating questions. The questions that dare us to consider an issue differently, more deeply, and that shake our pre-conceived notions. If we want to understand injustices and inequalities, we must talk to those who have experienced these injustices and inequalities recognizing their voice, knowledge and expertise. Only by listening to those in our community can we find the right questions. Only by partnering with these communities and individuals can we develop the best questions that have the potential to drive our society to be better.
