What is the path toward community well-being? How do women arrive at a place of equal footing with men in society and community life? How is racial justice pursued? For those who wait for justice, how much is enough waiting? How do you keep going? What worked for you?
These last two questions – how do you keep going, what worked for you – animated a panel discussion this morning. Participants included a former League of Women Voters executive, a social justice worker, a a former city council member, and a former state legislator.
They knew each other. They worked on each other’s political campaigns. They drew support from their friends’s friends. And perhaps most importantly, they worked on issues about which they had a passion, and they never gave up. Alexander told of working on a bill in the N.C. Senate for 15 straight years before it passed.
