In times of great disruption, we are called to find the cracks of light and place ourselves as seekers of systemic change right into these cracks, like wedges of truth and love. Born out of a desire to actualize real transformation, the hopes and intentions for Threshold 4 Change are clear: to make space for humans interested in beginning a process of deep listening, conversation and action to affect sustainable, systemic change throughout the state of California. Dropping roles and labels, while holding fast to our shared humanity, a community of allies embodying the change we want to see in our System, in our communities, and first and foremost, in ourselves.

As a citizen advocacy coordinator, Derona King has had the privilege of being a witness to decades of people who have voluntarily entered into one another’s lives. What these people have created together is often more beautiful than anything they could have created apart from one another. These are stories of light and hope and love. Some of these people have shared lives together for decades and some have left this earth, but their stories live on to teach us. They have become the Legacies that inspire our future community building efforts.
