How to Become an Advocate for the Most Vulnerable

Becoming an advocate for the most vulnerable often means that you will have to get out of your comfort zone. Rob’s guest on this episode has done just that. Rob’s guest is Shane Clairborne, an author, speaker, community activist, and founder of The Simple Way. For 25 years, Shane has been motivated by an unwavering commitment to those that need the most help.

It all started in 1995, when a large group of homeless people banded together while they were told by the archdiocese that they had 48 hours to leave the abandoned church in which they were living. This led Shane to start The Simple Way, an organization that works to build a community where everyone looks out for each other, especially those who may not be able to help themselves.

He has traveled all over the world as an advocate for those voices that are often forgotten, which has led him to jail standing up for the homeless and to places like Iraq and Afghanistan to stand against war.

How To Best Support Those Hit Hardest by COVID-19

Lisa Marsh Ryerson, CEO of the AARP Foundation, the foundation that supports the AARP.

As we all make our way through this pandemic, it has been quite obvious that those hardest hit have been our seniors.

Rob’s guest today is Lisa Marsh Ryerson, CEO of the AARP Foundation, the foundation that supports the AARP. Lisa and AARP have been able to fund studies centered on the root causes and effects of social isolation on mental and physical health. They are working to harness new technology and services to help seniors connect to community resources while they are staying in their residence. This allows those affected to stay in the know of what is happening in their community.

Not only are seniors the most affected from a physical health standpoint, but they have been the most isolated. Even before the world was hit by a pandemic, isolation has been on the rise for the past decade. More than 25% of adults over the age of 65 who live in community settings were socially isolated.

How to Lead Through a Crisis

Right now, everything seems to be in a constant state of fluidity. How are nonprofit leaders supposed to guide their organizations through these constantly changing conditions?

David Langiulli, certified professional coach, leadership trainer, and nonprofit board member

Rob’s guest today is David Langiulli, a certified professional coach, leadership trainer, and nonprofit board member. He specializes in mental fitness and has found unique ways to integrate that into his leadership training. David also leads Fundraising Leadership, an organization that helps grow nonprofit leaders. He believes that people, by nature, are always trying to fix and control everything in their life. The reality is, in the face of a global pandemic, there is so much in the world that is completely out of our control.

Even without a pandemic going on, being a leader creates a lot of stress. It is times like these that we need leaders with exceptionally strong mental fortitude. So much of leadership is about what goes on in a leader’s mind. David works to help leaders harness that stress for the greater good instead of allowing it to become destructive.

How do we overcome our growing divisiveness in today’s cultural context

There are so many challenges in our world today, whether they be economic, social, political, or otherwise. Additionally, there is a growing divisiveness in our own culture today. So what are we to do with our divisive environment?

My guest on the show believes it starts from within. My guest is Tim Shriver, who has been both CEO and Chairman of the Special Olympics for 25 years.

He works to promote health, education, and a more unified world through the joy of sports. Tim’s mother Eunice Kennedy Shriver started the Special Olympics in 1968, and he will talk about what prompted her to first start the Special Olympics. He currently leads the International Board of Directors for the Special Olympics and serves together with over 5.6 million Special Olympics athletes in 172 countries. He serves on several well-known boards, has written a NY Times best selling book and produced 4 films.

Tim Shriver, Chairman of Special Olympics, Inc.

The Special Olympics has created so many moments that bring people face-to-face with those with disabilities. These moments are not always quantifiable or measurable, but they have certainly changed millions of people’s lives for the better all over the world. In order to overcome this divisiveness in today’s culture, leaders must push for people to keep their hearts open. The ability to lead by example through showing acceptance is a superpower of all great leaders. With our hearts open, we can learn to accept anyone, no matter what their disability. There are beautiful things in all of us that are capable of shining a light of acceptance, and through that light, lead others to open up their hearts too and eventually change the world.
