For the greater good:
I am very happy that we raised awareness of Foggy Bottom Plan B. The fact that two women known to us used the service because of our work made me feel great. Working hard on something I’m passionate about and then seeing the positive impact that work can have is an amazing feeling.
For my own experience:
A very important aspect of organizing for social justice is relationships, this has been emphasized throughout the course. Working on this project was an opportunity to see that in action. Our relationship with the organization we were working with as well as our relationships with one another in the group demonstrated to me what strengths and weaknesses we all had. I know that I’ll be better prepared the next time I’m working in a larger group on a complex task and that is an invaluable skill to be developing.
