In Their Voices

This section is dedicated to all voices echoing through the oral tradition – powerful counterstories honoring ancestors, mentoring the young, empowering future generations with resiliency and hope. The voices arrive at the website as contributors that represent different segments of humanity . . . the qualitative researcher, the professor, the campesino, the nanny, the dreamer, the author, the poet, the lawyer, the artist, the scholar, the non-profit selfless mentor . . . all coming together in this space . . . mano-a-mano . . . in a circle of advocacy . . . all creating a braid glistening in the sun, dancing to the drums of freedom, calling all to join with urgency – without fear chanting around the fire of humanity.
