Lead with Love

“Love is actionable: love is lending your gifts and strengths to those in need without hesitation. Love is sharing your resources generously with one another. Love means showing up and placing your body on the frontlines in between those you love and the harm that is coming their way. Love means speaking up at every opportunity to tell the whole truth and historical context of an issue. Love means recognizing and leveraging your privilege to fight for the rights of your loved ones. Love means going out to face the places of hate to defend those you care about. This is what it looks like to move beyond a passive, flippant love, to a fierce and righteous love.” —Nwamaka Agbo
