It's that time of the year, movie season! Around here, we love a good story. ⠀

Most films keep you interested until they're done, and then, pretty quickly, you forget about them.

But a really good film? Well, that's different. It starts changing you as you're watching it, inspires you, and stays with you long after it's ended.⠀

The news can be overwhelming, and often even though we want to help, we don't.

👉We love it when outlets like put together articles that lay out actionable steps that can make a difference.

None of us will save the world from pain, racism, inequity, or suffering from one action, but we can collectively make an impact by taking one step.

If you have been watching the news coverage on Afghanistan and are looking for ways to help, we encourage you to head over to NPR and check out their article, "The Simple Steps You Can Take Right Now To Help Afghan Refugees" by DEEPA SHIVARAM

The 'emotional residue' attached to work and life circumstances can lead to burnout. Is this something that resonates with you?

As a small team working to help communities talk about uncomfortable subjects while the realities of the latest newsreel play in the background, we empathize with those who might be struggling.

These days we are permitting ourselves to pause when needed. This helps us to be fully present to our clients and each other.

Keep going! Your voice matters. But don't forget to pause when needed.

➡️The city of Philadelphia has custody of about 5,000 abused and neglected children.
➡️The city of Philadelphia has laws in place to ensure ALL people have the right to serve these children through foster care and adoption.
➡️The city of Philadelphia recognized that one of its contractors -- A Catholic agency -- was discriminating against LGBTQIA+ individuals
➡️The city of Philadelphia fired said agency because they broke the law

So what did the Supreme Court do? They came in and told Philadelphia that they had to give this agency its contract back even though the agency admittedly broke the law and used tax payer money to fund discriminatory practices.
➖ :
"The dramatic nature of Thursday's decision was underlined by the fact that the case involved government contracting — an area of the law in which the court in the past has said that government is at the apex of its power to impose conditions on how the taxpayers' money is spent." NPR
