Sarah van Gelder developed a sharp sense for injustice as a little girl when she moved to India with her family for a year and witnessed the poverty all around her. She decided that the only way she could make sense of her unearned privilege was to commit her life to making the world a more just place.
She tells their stories in a new book “The Revolution Where You Live: Stories From A 12,000-Mile Journey Through a New America” (Berrett-Koehler Publishers/2017). On her journey she observed that people’s enthusiasm to make change in their communities outstripped their skills to do so, which led her to found PeoplesHub, a training platform to empower and equip people to tackle issues that matter to them. Host Frank Stasio talks with Sarah van Gelder about her journey.
Van Gelder will speak at the Eno River Unitarian Universalist Fellowship at 7 p.m. on Monday Oct. 9
