Many of us marched with KAIROS in the strike today. Zach brought the banner that he led us in making at the vigil last Sunday. Beautiful and empowering, thanks Zach. Thanks to KAIROS for organizing us into group for the march. Hopefully this is the beginning of real action.
We are pleased to announce the hiring of Zachary Grant as our new Community Director. This is the next step in our ongoing process of change. He’ll be helping us realize some next steps over the coming months.
Zachary will start July 15. All those of us who have met him are really excited about starting this new era together with him. Once he starts, there will be a series of “cottage meetings” to allow everyone to meet him in a more intimate context.
