​Advocacy is empathy, compassion and community at work.”-

Janna Cachola

We are all advocates


Watch this TED talk and reflect on your own story:

  • What does advocacy mean to you?

  • In what ways are you an advocate?

  • What issues drive you to better understand and/or share your story with others and advocate

Week 3 Heart Work

When we have been harmed, that harm can bring about the advocate in us. This week we will explore how we are advocates and the different ways advocacy shows up in our lives.


In groups, write down on:

Who are your advocates?

Who are you an advocate for?


Think about:

Together we will create brave space. Because there is no such thing as a “safe space” — We exist in the real world. We all carry scars and we have all caused wounds. In this space We seek to turn down the volume of the outside world, We amplify voices that fight to be heard elsewhere, We call each other to more truth and love. We have the right to start somewhere and continue to grow.  We have the responsibility to examine what we think we know. We will not be perfect. T his space will not be perfect. It will not always be what we wish it to be. But It will be our brave space together, and We will work on it side.
