Dear Bay Area... Happy 2020! We are the Regional Organizing Core Group of Be Present Inc., a national grassroots organization that builds sustainable leadership for social justice (www.BePresenr.org). Now is the time to join together: women, kids, men and all folks on the gender spectrum, whether you are the 99% or part of the 1%, we continue to be challenged by the historical barriers of race, gender, power and class, rather than having our diversity be our strength. We at Be Present, Inc. teach and practice a model, the Be Present Empowerment Model to make and sustain positive change in each person's life. We provide an ongoing community of practice to emerge issues within ourselves and our families, workplaces, schools, and communities and provide training to know ourselves outside of the distress of our oppression. Each person is responsible for her/his/their own movement. We provide a way to embody the change that we want to see in the world. This is how we keep the movement going after the march, election, retreat or moment of inspiration. Come and create the support you need to make the changes you want to see in your life and world!
