We’re Leslie and Laura Camacho. We created the Glimmering podcast to help ourselves - and others - to think and talk about The Big Stuff. Join us as we learn out loud together on subjects ranging from marriage and mental health to politics and parenting. We’re committed to help each other love deeply, grow successfully, and live justly.

activism, parenting, politics, social justice
This is the third and final part of the Awkward Social Justice series. In this episode, we talk about how to take everything we’ve discussed in the first two episodes of this series and channel those things into meaningful action and change. We’re taking the ideological to the practical. We’re newbies at activism, but our gifts are connecting and synthesizing resources, so we’re going to put our efforts out into the world to effect change within our sphere of influence. At root and most simply, that’s what activism really is. Check out our extensive resource list in the show notes!

This is part 2 of the Awkward Social Justice series, where we explore our history as non-activists; trace our inroads into civic engagement and social justice issues; and finally offer a encouragement and resources for others who are just getting started. In this episode, we talk about learning to live justly: the point where we began to put our Awareness to work into engagement and taking Action. Laura talks about the 2 year gap between her big tipping point (Ferguson, 2014) and when she graduated from signal boosting to civic action. Leslie talks about his gradual evolution and a few key moments that have changed his trajectory significantly. This is an invitation to observe where you are in this process, and to be deliberate about the next steps in your own evolution. There are some great resources in the Show Notes to help you do some heavy thinking (mostly on racial injustice, as that remains a theme that is personal for us), and we are always an email away.
