Or, more precisely, it’s about harnessing the indomitable and shared power of our nation’s changemakers to forge a truly healthy and equitable society. And we can’t do that with just a single event.
So, think of Upswell as an arc of action. Each Pop-Up – every conversation, connection, collaboration – builds with intention toward a three-day Summit that will unleash the enormous energy we’ve been gathering all year.
When people ask how are you, do you answer honestly? We want to make space for an honest conversation about how the #Upswell community is doing given even the conditions we’re facing – white supremacy, the pandemic, work, life, and the historic events we’re living through.
Let’s talk about money. Do we actually have enough resources in this sector? Are they getting to Black, Native, Latinx, and other communities of color? How well are we accounting for our ongoing crises? And what are our data telling us about whether we are moving in the right direction or need a major course correction?
Ready to dive deeper? This Exchange continues the conversation from our Pop-Up – Let's Talk About Money. It will be a dynamic forum for exploring ideas from the Pop-Up from your unique perspective.
People power changework. As we shape our strategies and build our movements, it's non-negotiable that we focus on the health of our people. Let’s take an honest look at how we’re really doing and consider creative, intentional, and impactful strategies for taking care of our people so that we’re fully charged for the work ahead.
