What has changed in society to allow the political conversation to grow more inclusive? Who are the people working to make change in our society? Probing deeper, we will consider what makes someone an activist — and what makes someone an effective agent of change. And we will look at who is still being left out, and what we can do to raise up the voices of those who too often go unheard. My own story — the son of a school bus driver and a construction worker who rose to become Mayor of Florida’s capital city — is key to my understanding of the answers to these questions. What is your story? This session will also provide an overview of our study group’s goals and topics for the coming weeks.
