Quote of the Day: Cynthia Changyit Levin
By 2001, I'd done plenty of fundraising and service charity work, but 'advocacy' was an odd, scary sounding word to me...until I realized that it's simply speaking out about something you care about. It took some Bread for the World members at my church to show me that it could be just a simple act of writing a letter, an email, or making a phone call. Yet that didn't mean it was easy. I was rather afraid someone from a Senate office would call me back to challenge me, saying, 'What did you mean by that!?' For me to write that first letter was not the most natural thing. My heart raced when I made my first phone call to my U.S. representative."
