Strategy for the times: grounded hope

Written by Allison Wolf

Bad news and tragedy surround us. The challenges appear to be enormous. Daunting. How do we hold ourselves up and make a difference in these times?

I believe that hope, grounded hope, is a necessary starting point.

Grounded hope emerges when we look at reality straight on, stand firm, and determine to believe that a better future is a possibility worth striving for.

Grounded hope helps us access our personal power. It is a mindset for strengthening resilience and our capacity to organize and act.

Recently there have been many writers tackling this topic because so many of us have needed help to find our way out of despair.

My article for the legal blog SLAW this July 2022 is all about grounded hope and provides links to resources for further reading. You can access the article here.
