How can we harness the energy for change that lives in each of us? In Soul Force, nonprofit leaders Reesheda Graham-Washington and Shawn Casselberry offer seven pivots that unleash the creative energy within us toward courage, community, and change. Building on Gandhi and Martin Luther King’s concept of a power mightier than ourselves, Soul Force moves us from barriers to bridge-building, self-centeredness to solidarity, consuming to creating, and maintenance to movement. Packed with stories from the authors’ work with Communities First Association, L!VE Café, and Mission Year, Soul Force invites readers on a journey from the societal shackles that bind to the Spirit who frees. From those working at the grassroots to those leading at the grass tips, Soul Force offers a compelling and practical model for personal and collective transformation.
