#103 / Can We Talk?
Click on this link to be connected to an inspiring article in the April 10, 2016 edition of The New York Times Magazine. The article is titled, "Can We Talk?" and it documents the success of the Leadership LAB, a Los Angeles-based organization that "organizes and empowers communities to defeat anti-LGBT prejudice locally, and through hands-on mentorship with activists from around the world."
If we create the human world that we most immediately inhabit through politics (and we do), and if we want to change that world (which I am pretty sure we also want to do), then we have to find a way to make politics transformative.
The Leadership LAB has demonstrated that it is possible to "change voters minds...by having a conversation."
It seems that we can use the "talking cure."
In fact, that's probably the only prescription that is going to work!
