“Surge is about reimagining your own power, civic duty and having the courage to take on transformational change in our educational systems. For me that means, quieting my own doubts, pushing the boundaries for what is possible to create an equitable society, breaking down silos in education and health, lifting up community-driven solutions, while being surrounded by a community of freedom dreaming leaders who are strengthening and supporting one another.”
