“Shifting charity into enterprise”
It’s amazing how quickly her voice, excitement and perseverance can change everything that you were thinking at one precise moment. I like to watch her talks on Ted.com every couple of months, to remind myself WHY I am doing what I am doing. If you haven’t seen her Ted Talks, shame on you. Watch them, again and again.
She was the executive director of Sustainable South Bronx, a non-profit focused on public advocacy and environmental solutions. They create green jobs, train individuals for these jobs and push for improvements on air quality in urban communities. She now has a staff and consulting firm, Majora Carter Group, that help visions become a reality. This is just one of the amazing human beings in this world really making a difference.
