"We are a 'bridge builder' in the social change ecosystem. Maybe our role isn't so programmatic, but looking at how we can serve as the hub or the touch point to connect all the work that's happening. Finding people doing this amazing work and bringing them together. We need to be recognized in the space as a better partner, willing and interested in being both allies and accomplices to people doing the good work." - Dan Mueller, Slow Food USA
