Sometimes I like to take walks around the center to admire its greatness. I’m thankful to have such a phenomenal staff and humbled to be in a position to lead this great house of courage. @ctr4chr way to go! Cheers to an already great 2018!

Today is like no other because I am reminded that each of our lives can only matter if we put our personal lives on the line to advance humanity. In that process, some lose their lives while others become benefactors. To me, Dr. King’s sacrifices remind me to be a contributor and I do that everyday at my work as CEO of the National Center for Civil and Human Right . Today give birth to a new you that contributes to the path of Justice.

Tbt to a great conversation I had with American environmentalist, Paul Hawken of @ProjectDrawdown, about reversing global warming. Paul, your wisdom is beyond this decade. Thanks for all the work you do.

While I was purposeful in my formation of the Global Soap Project, I arrived at my purpose with an unrivaled passion that ignored the critic of the unsuspecting number of friends who thought the concept of recycling soap was idiotic.

Reflecting on this Christmas holiday, my lasting thoughts are how incredibly grateful I am for my family and friends. The holidays remind me just how powerful laughter, love, and humility are. As we unravel gifts, realizing just how fortunate we are this holiday season, I challenge you to extend the same kindness, humility, and love to a stranger. Merry Christmas! Peace.

Amber Jordan of Genhouse is a young lady with a big heart who took the initiative to travel to Uganda and help those affected by the LRA War. The LRA War immensely contributed to the cycle of orphans in Northern Uganda. Genhouse travels to different parts of Uganda to help Orphans by creating a constant parental embrace. Giving them love, a sense of belonging, and place to call home.  They are currently raising funds to build an orphanage in Acut Omer; an infamous war territory during the LRA war.  Amber, I truly commend the work you are doing. As a former refugee I relate to the hope you are giving to orphans in my homeland of Uganda.  keep up the good work. To find out more about GENhouse’s projects please visit genhouse.org and follow her @jordan4jesus

This week I am highlighting Terrence Lester from Love Beyond Walls. Love Behind Walls is a nonprofit organization that provides assistance to the homeless and poor, giving them shelter, grooming and advocating for their rights. The founder, Terrence Lester walked across country to raise awareness for his organization. His selfless love for humanity deserves recognition. Terrence, thank you for being willing to do whatever it takes to help the community and restore hope to those that can not help themselves. Terrence emulates what his organization stands for. Everyone please take a second and go give Terrence from @lovebeyondwalls some love.

If we want to see diversity and inclusion thrive, we must be mentors to our young people. The very essence of being young is to ask questions. “What the heck is going on?” Once they discover that what they see is not working in their best interest, they wish to change it, to lead us towards something better. But they have to obtain the skill sets of leadership first. And that’s where we come in, as their teachers.
