About the blog

After running non-profit advocacy organizations for more than 20 years, I spent 2017 on sabbatical. After years in the trees, if not the weeds, this has been my attempt to see the forest.

I stepped out of work to reflect on my experience as a non-profit director and think about advocacy for social change in the current divisive and dysfunctional political environment. I’ve been exploring outside of my own field — human rights and Latin America — to see what new ideas and tools might be used in advocacy.

This blog is intended to process and share my sabbatical learning.

Let me know what you think!
