ABCD Workshop in Sarasota!

I’m just now coming off the buzz of an incredible workshop I had the pleasure of co-hosting together with ABCD Institute Faculty member Dan Duncan and Mary Butler, a local ABCD Neighborhood Organizer and my good friend.

Here is the .pdf summary of the material that was shared, including a first-ever compilation* of photos I took on visits to one of my favorite hubs of social-political-economic-spiritual innovation and neighborhood connecting, Broadway United Methodist Church:

People loved learning about the power of citizens, building connection in neighborhoods, and focusing on gifts instead of needs.  A couple of quotes from participants that make me very happy:

“Thank you so much for an awe inspiring workshop last week. I am more committed than ever to work harder at what I do and to continue to assist our residents in finding those assets in the community. They are the catalyst in making changes in their community.”
~ Janine Harris, Communities for a Lifetime, Department of Elder Affairs
Tallahassee, FL

“I had a great time, met wonderful people and learned a lot. I can’t wait to get more involved in my community and apply what I learned. ♥”
~ Roxy Azuaje, Photographer, Student



I feel so fortunate to do the work I do. Thank you to all the partners, friends and families who helped make this event and my journey thus far possible!!!
