Many voices are like a chorus that can’t be ignored
In 2016 I became involved with MOCHA (Men of Color Health Awareness). I worked on the street light project and got involved in an array things, eating right; Community; Way Finders, Resident Health advocate for Way Finders.
I just jump in with both feet. You are the community and you need to participate in things that involve your community. If you don’t care about your community, nobody else will. Eventually you’ll get bitten by the bug but once you see you can make difference, you get hooked. It’s not just for my community but advocating for myself as well. It hits home. There is strength in numbers, many voices are like a chorus that can’t be ignored. There are many opportunities…and volunteering is the easiest.
