Last year was my first time attending RG’s annual retreat, Making Money Make Change. I went into the conference feeling both nervous and excited and ultimately did not know what to expect. Upon arriving though, I felt my entire body and heart relax. What an amazing group of people who put MMMC together. I felt so appreciative for the opportunity to meet and work with the amazing presenters as well as other conference attendees. I especially took a lot from the more intimate pod groups that were created as a safe space container. I felt so lucky to have the pod leaders and group members that I did. MMMC absolutely changed me and really helped bring to life what I had taken from the praxis group I was a part of prior to the conference. To me, MMMC means hope, collaboration, and celebration of our full selves in order to create social change.
