This has been an exceptionally painful week.
We have muted the podcast thusfar this week, in support of the #amplifymelanatedvoices movement, the #amplifyblackvoices movement, and in support of the #theshowmustbepaused movement.
We have assembled a list of resources that highlight a variety of books, websites, podcasts, nonprofit organizations and GoFundMe campaigns that I would like to direct your attention to in lieu of our normal programming. These resources can be found below.
This podcast, as I say in every episode introduction, is dedicated to two questions: first, what are your priorities? Second, how do you align your limited resources — including your time, money, energy and attention — to the things that matter most?
If dismantling systemic racism and social and economic injustice is a priority to you, as it is to me, then the challenge that we as a community face is answering that tough question. We’ve identified the priority. How do we align our money and time to support that priority?
I have intentionally designed Afford Anything to be a nonpartisan platform. All major party affiliations are welcome here. All religions are welcome here. All people who have love in their heart are welcome here.
