Never a demonstration by the sector to raise money and raise consciousness in order to change the way people think about changing the world.
This is a march- cooperative not competitive, activist not athletic- three days and 60 miles long- for anyone and everyone who works in the charitable sector, from executive directors to social workers, and for anyone who supports them.
It's for the people who get labeled "overhead" and the people who rely on them. This is your tribe. This is your root cause. Because these are the issues that stand in the way of our potential to impact the causes we work on every day. If we don't take a stand for ourselves, a stand will never be taken.
