Balancing Pennies and Purpose: The Inevitable Activist’s Guide to Survival
You know something is wrong. You’re being called to fix it. It’s not easy but somehow there is an unshakeable pull to your cause. Then one day you wake up to the chants in the middle of a protest or sit-in and all of a sudden what you’re meant to be doing, your purpose, is crystal clear. It also doesn’t pay.
