2019 ANNUAL REPORT: Growing Forward

We live in a society obsessed with material growth, a concept that is often confused with the idea of progress. Most living organisms including trees and human beings, grow physically to a certain point and stop, but continue to develop. Growing Forward reflects this paradox. We should not attempt to keep growing but rather focus on developing to be and serve better, to gain a greater appreciation for people, and to truly understand the causes behind the problems we are trying to resolve. We should advocate for the transformation of a system that affects and harms millions, generating poverty and fueling climate change. We find ourselves at the threshold of a new era, when some want to erect walls, we should build bridges and come together with many to generate social change. Change is not only possible but necessary…allowing us to continue growing forward.
