We belong in solidarity

“The work of change requires a different you. It requires a more clear, more grounded and more certain you – more certain of your capacity, your energy, and your power.”

Through sharing stories, reminding us to breathe, helping us see each other and recognizing our individual and collective power, Rev. Alvin Herring showed WKKF Community Leadership Network fellows how we belong in solidarity. At the historic Tougaloo College Woodworth Chapel in Tougaloo, Mississippi, Rev. Herring shared a challenging and inspiring message of unity, compassion and justice with the Class Two fellows in fall 2019. “In Lak’ech ala K’in.”

The Rev. Alvin Herring is executive director of Faith in Action, formerly PICO National Network, an international network of 39 federations and local groups in 21 states and three countries. Prior to assuming this leadership role, Rev. Herring worked as the director for racial equity and community engagement for the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. While serving in this role, he advanced racial justice by ensuring groups leading racial justice work they had resources to propel their campaigns and initiatives.
