As we enter what is traditionally a season of gratitude, we reflect on how the legacy of others is woven into a fabric that not only holds our community together but lifts it up. In this season we are invited to recall what seeds were sown by those who came before, what foundations were constructed for us, and to remember that some obligations are not a burden, but a joy.
Without closing our eyes to the realities of today and within one of the most difficult years, this may still be a season of expanding our focus to a long view and re-centering ourselves on our values. By remembering the legacies of others, we can better direct our own toward achieving justice now, so that it may flourish tomorrow.
Legacy Responds will center on the decisions of a few in our community who have taken up the mantle of those who came before and adapted to the responsibilities of the present. With personal perspective and the wisdom of lived experience, we will explore how the life, love, struggle, and service of a leader might serve a community for generations.
