I’m officially stunned at how quickly the days go by. In the thirteen days since my first note to the base announcing POC Today’s fundraiser, there’s been a swarm of action for the team and I, right alongside the storm of nuclear news over this August.
And in the wake of the white nationalist movement’s rally at the University of Virginia last night as well as the movement’s “Unite the Right” event there today, it’s clear there is much for our communities to read through and examine.
Rather than discussing these events at length in this note, however, I’m going to be more brief for the “second shot” at supporting POCT this fall.
I am proud to share POC Today’s latest interview for you all, titled Charla: Creative and Fearless.
Char is an awesome thinker, speaker, and community advocate, and though it took a while to finally sit down and interview her, it was well worth the wait.
I am also proud to share Edwin’s Videoscribe for POCT, in which he discusses our team’s focus on issues relating to mental health and well being for our communities going forward. It’s just Ed’s third vid supporting the team’s OUTLINE statement, but he’s getting better with each production, and it’s encouraging all of us to keep growing in our ability.
Each of these videos are material proof of just how much we’re capable of as a team when we put our minds together, how we’re getting better, and just how far we can and must still go.
Please consider donating to our work for this fall, as well as sharing our content –or this note– with your friends, colleagues, and other allies and advocates out there.
Together we do all of it, and together we’re going to win. We’ve got to.
Finally, a round of thank yous are in order to those supporters out there who have already donated to our drive. With you we keep going! And for you we’re incredibly thankful.
As they say in Ubuntu, [we are] because you all are.
Yours in strength and endless honor,
