There are things that you know from the beginning are meant for you. I remember reading the invitation to become part of the 2015 generation of auténticos and I still remember how deeply identified I felt with the School of Authentic Journalism as I reviewed its program.
"Training in social movements", "Effective spread of information through different media"... Perfect!
I lived together with slightly fewer than 50 people during four days and realized that we're not alone. That beyond our cultural and geographical differences, the struggles each of us set out to fight have something in common: to help those who have neither the voice nor the means to be noticed, to be heard. To us, the School of Authentic Journalism is union. It is hope. It is a path. It is a door and a bridge to creating more just and egalitarian realities. It is authenticity.
There's really no reason I can think of why you shouldn't help us to make the 2016 School happen. Please help us with any gift, large or small.
I urge those who are reading this to please help us extend this opportunity to another generation of scholars in 2016.
The phrase that stuck with me was Al Giordano's: "We won't change the world. We are already changing it with our work."
The struggle is still ours.
