We all like to imagine we would’ve stood on the right side of history
during the times of slavery, the Civil War, Women’s Rights, and Watergate.
But we don’t know that for sure. Social pressure, fear, and intimidation might have made us act otherwise.

It takes tremendous courage to:

  • stand up to social injustices,
  • act rightly in the face of popular opposition,
  • risk offending other influential people, and
  • potentially incur personal losses.
