I have been to India…, Part 10
I’ve been to India
We bore witness to strength and courage
We internalized the essential work of lifting up the last girl, last woman.
We saw that even in the most dire situations, the power of the collective can move mountains.
We came together and represented for MEV, the US, and the work to end violence against women.
We will carry forward, and search for points of convergence,
We return home wiser, stronger, more unified and ready to act.
On the last day of Convening 3 in India, each participant was given just five minutes to capture what was sticking with them at that moment in a seven line poem which began, “I have been to India….”. Since the return of the Cohort from India, we’ve been sharing these poems, without attribution, in this space.
