“I remember the first time I told my story. I cried in front of a room full of people and felt embarrassed. But then I realized, if I didn’t tell my story – someone else would do it for me. And it won’t be the story you want them to tell. And that’s why I hope you get involved with the Institute for Change Leaders. Because now, more than ever, we need more movement leaders. We need more change leaders.” ~ Christopher Torres
