Addressing the Elephant in the Room

The news makes us deeply sad almost every day. We know there’s good in the world, but there’s also a lot that needs to be changed, both abroad and in our own community. But being sad and doing nothing isn’t going to get us anywhere. At YBH, we intend to keep trying to change the world, even when it feels futile.  

Because the reality is, It’s not futile. 

One thing we believe deep in our hearts is that lasting change requires of each person a willingness to see beyond their own narrow perspective. As compassionate and open as we may be, if we’re not paying attention to the world around us, or if we’re deliberately avoiding uncomfortable conversations that may shake up our world-view, then we’re missing out on opportunities for deep connection and healing in our communities. 

As part of our commitment to our community and to the expansion of our own perspectives, we’ve partnered up with Maharani Peace Hall to present a series of Elephant Talks.  READ MORE…
