We Dream, We Build, We Win
If Harriet Tubman didn’t dream, if Dr. King didn’t dream, if Dolores Huerta didn’t dream–where would we be?
Dreams are sacred and necessary. They reveal possibilities, and affirm the necessity to create a different future. Dreams allow us to unleash ourselves and our families from the nightmares of racial, economic, and educational injustice. Dreams give us hope. However, we have a responsibility to not only dream big, but to bring those big dreams to bear. Harriet, Martin, and Dolores didn’t just dream, they built a movement. They won lasting changes from which we all benefit. We must do the same – for our babies, our communities, our futures. Dream, build, win. And, that’s exactly what we are doing at WEPOWER.
We started 2022 dreaming together, learning together, and reflecting together. We spent hours strategizing and plotted a path forward for this year and next. Our dreams focused on caring for ourselves and each other, creating physical spaces for joy and community building, forming synergy between our changemaker and community wealth building teams, building and wielding power towards early childhood and local economic policy wins, and increasing access to support and resources for Black and Latinx businesses to thrive.
Rooted in our mission, we’ve relentlessly grounded ourselves in this dream and continually refine our strategies on how to build a people-powered movement. In less than 12 months, here are just some of our wins throughout 2022:
Every day, we try to honor the foundation of dreams laid by our ancestors – freedom fighters like Harriet, Martin, and Dolores– by identifying and creating space for WEPOWER changemakers like Adesha Armstrong and entrepreneurs like Tiffany Wesley. And, we will continue to do so, because our babies, our communities, and our futures demand that.
WEPOWER Early Childhood Changemaker
Thank you for your time, passion, energy and support. We can’t do this without YOU. Help us activate more changemakers and entrepreneurs to dream, build, and win, with an end of year gift as we close out 2022. We’ve got so much work to do – dreams to cast, movements to build, fights to win, and joy to immerse ourselves in.
