Insight Dialogues with Judith Rodin and Robin Wright

Insight Dialogues with Judith Rodin and Robin Wright

An inspiring conversation this evening between Judith Rodin and Robin Wright which was the first Insight Dialogues from the Rockefeller Foundation.
A few takeaways:

  • Engage people to act and share – to be a part, participation – skills and talents; not just giving money.
  • Silence is apathy; let your compassion win – possess everyday drive and get up to fix the broken and unresolved for the betterment of our world.
  • Engage with people/organizations who are on the ground making change.
  • Movements make the change.
  • Repeat your message with conviction that won’t let go. Love the cause.
  • The indomitable optimism in the face of extraordinary adversity is powerful to witness. Living thankful, hopeful and joyful despite situations and conditions. No matter if you are a victim or an activist, advocate, partner, etc…, you must have an attitude and outlook that won’t give up or quit.

North Texas CPS To Fix Broken System

North Texas CPS To Fix Broken System

Since 2005, we have known there were gaps which were failing children in North Texas. An report released today, Child Protective Services Dallas County Management Review, confirmed it’s time for change. It stated, “much of the crisis facing Dallas County is self-inflicted.” Click here to read more.

Robert T. Garrett reported, “CPS has been publicly reeling for months. Turnover has skyrocketed as overwhelmed, low-paid caseworkers flee the agency. Cases of suspected abuse and neglect have lingered, leading to missed signs that could have helped rescue children much sooner. And a federal judge has ruled that a key portion of the state’s child-protection work, foster care, is broken and in need of long-term oversight and repair.” Click here to read his article.
