I am so grateful to God for these 10 powerful individuals and the work they have been doing for years to make the world better. It was such an honor to share the stage with them and Common at the #Oscars last night. This is just the beginning. They are from all different walks of life with varying degrees of influence and resources, all fighting through their own personal fear and pain to create positive change for people like you and me. We hope that seeing these people up there touched your heart and emboldened you all to get involved with their work or to begin serving in your own communities. If you have a heart to help please stay tuned for information on how to get involved with these amazing people. Even the smallest bit helps. I love you all so much family. Let's do this! Thank you Bryan Stevenson (Equal Justice Initiative), Janet Mock, José Andrés, Patrisse Cullors, Nicole Hockley (Sandy Hook Promise), Dolores Huerta (Dolores Huerta Foundation), Tarana Burke (#MeToo), Cecile Richards, Bana Alabed, Alice Brown Otter.
