Lobby Day (7/14/14)

Lessons from Today:

1. None of us do everything right the first time. We need to give each other room to learn from those moments. I think being vasicious isn’t actually helpful to anyone’s growth. Call people on their mistakes and then give room to learn from them. Otherwise we create an atmosphere of guilt and I know I don’t want anyone feeling guilty for what they say or do but rather feeling accountable and willing to learn based on the knowledge they were given.

2. It’s possible to hold ourselves and others accountable for the things we do and say. Actually it’s completely necessary. We all Act. We all Speak. I need to hold myself accountable for my actions and for the actions of those who need to be held accountable. I need someone to hold me accountable for what I do and they need to hold themselves accountable for what they do. Let’s not imbalance the scale but only acknowledging and accounting our actions or the actions of others. Let’s do both because we’re all here in these spaces. Please don’t act like there’s only one – Self of Others

3. Listen with the Intention to Listen (Straightforward)

4. Step Up, Step to the Side. Claim Space, Give Space. If you talk a lot please give room for other voices. If you don’t talk a lot challenge yourself to make your voice heard.

I’m not exempt. I’m still Learning these as I Speak on these Lessons 🙏❤️
