Testimonial - Geoffrey Nelson-Blake

During my time as a Community Organizing Resident at the San Francisco Organizing Project, my organizing took various routes: a project with a group of Latino parents dealing with bilingual school issues, a clergy-led responsible banking campaign, and a process to involve more youth in our organizing. Through these diverse efforts, I began to attain "organizer eyes," I can now see more clearly how political choices directly impact the livelihoods of individuals, families, and communities throughout San Francisco. Furthermore, I now see more clearly how faith values are lived out in the public sphere.
