We’re the creative directors of our shared future on this beautiful blue planet we call home. How are we going to individually and collectively step up to solve the great social, political and environmental crises of our time? We need antiracist players at all levels, in all sectors and in all positions. We need as many people as possible to be #litonpurpose. To be #litonpurpose is to embody the change the world needs by focusing on how our individual creative gifts can collectively make the world brighter. Change starts with you (us).
What keeps me inspired is the power of creativity, community and collaboration to spark change. In the words of National Youth Poet Laureate Amanda Gorman: “There is always light, if only we’re brave enough to see it. If only we’re brave enough to be it.”
At bombilla, we’re embodying our light! We’re a small and mighty team with big dreams of a world free of racial, economic and social oppression. Meet the brilliant humans making change happen:
