(Funding) Knowledge vs. Wisdom

One of my favorite ways to illustrate the gap between order and chaos, as defined by our society
  • secured a cross-functional collaboration of other like-minded activist causes
  • secured a steady stream of revenue that tells them the effort won’t be helpless without constant infusions of capital
  • have established a functional self-governing committee that’s rooted in the community
  • has secured community buy-in
  • has demonstrated that its vision addresses the root causes and conditions beneath the problems the activism aspires to solve
  • Start small, fine-tune, and extrapolate
  • Lather, rinse, repeat
  • Begin local, and scale upwards to meet the top-down as they reach to assist battle-tested solutions that are rooted in their communities
