- Season 9-Episode 220-Transforming Adversity into Advocacy: The Story of Devin Moore and the Race to Speak Up Anti-Bullying Organization Sara Gullihur-Bradford aka SJ Childs 27:09
What if you could turn a painful personal experience into a transformative platform? That's exactly what our guest, Devin Moore, founder of the Race to Speak Up Anti-Bullying Organization, did. Through his own painful experiences with bullying, he found a powerful purpose: to empower students to stand against bullying and promote inclusivity. His brainchild, Race to Speak Up, is a beacon of hope, educating not just students but also schools and libraries about the importance of treating each other with understanding and respect. Plus, his children's anti-bullying book, Devin Speaks Up, is sparking important conversations at an age where it can make a lasting impact.
In our chat with Devin, we also took a deep dive into what a safe and nurturing workplace looks like. A place where each one of us can take a stand against bullying, by embracing the simple yet impactful steps of active listening and positive affirmations. But it doesn't stop there. Devin also walks us through his Self-Care regime – the importance of self-dates and reconnecting with oneself. He shares his journey of juggling between personal growth and fostering a college organization focused on Black student involvement. Remember, it's not just about how we remember others, but also about how we remember ourselves. Tune in and get inspired by Devin's journey, because it's a testament to the fact that adversity can be turned into a beacon of hope and inclusivity.
