The 6 P’s to make change happen (via Brene Brown)

In her brilliant book, “I thought it was just me (but it isn’t)” which looks at perfectionism and shame, Brene details the way WE can make change happen.

Personal
“Even the most personal changes often have a powerful ripple effect through the lives of our families, friends and colleagues.”

Pens
“Write a letter. Most organisational leaders and legislators will respond to letters, emails and faxes.”

Polls
“Vote. Find out how candidates feel about the issues that affect your life and vote.”

Participation
“Learn about the organisations that support your issues. Join them in the fight.”

Purchases
“The dollar is mightier than the sword: stop buying from people who don’t share your values.

Protests
A protest is not always a million people marching on the capital. Sometimes the protest is four or five people showing up at a school board meeting in someone’s office.”
