The Change Agent: Tales of Resilience

Posted September 18, 2012 in Blog, Press hits

What inspires us to try to respond to and recover from difficulties? What actually enables us to respond and recover? In this inspiring issue of The Change Agent, writers explore how our communities and families often rally to soften or deflect a blow…and perhaps even change the conditions that created the blow. Read stories about how individuals, neighborhoods, and whole communities have drawn strength and persevered to respond to challenges and create change. Whether it’s a story about a newly diagnosed HIV patient, an ESOL class that’s lost the only bus line in their neighborhood, or a community that’s been deserted by its principal employer, these stories will inspire you, build your resolve, equip you with action steps, and encourage you to notice the resiliency and strength in yourself and in the people and communities around you.
