“Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel famously described the tumultuous ’60’s as ‘No Time for Neutrality.’ We are living in these times again, and we need consciousness-raising and skills-building to form communities of moral conviction and effective action. The Sojourner Truth School for Social Change Leadership promises to do just that, marshaling the prodigious talents of many who have been doing this work for decades and setting it on Rev. Andrea Ayvazian’s foundation of passion, love, and deep spiritual connection. It is an honor to be connected to this project.
