Communicating for Change: “We Serve Everyone”

Serves-Everyone_thumb

This just made my day! Josh Driver created the website OpenforService.org in response to the “Religious Freedom Restoration Act” just passed in Indiana. His goal was to help businesses that did not support the law let members of the public know that the business welcomed everyone and reassure them that they would not face discrimination if they entered the business premises. The movement has taken off in 23 states already.

What a great example of:

  • Communicating for social change
  • Communicating across differences
  • Empathy and compassion
  • Harnessing the power of social media
  • Speaking truth to power

Kudos, Josh Driver! I don’t have a storefront, but I proudly display your sign!
