Terence Lester Lets Go

The Disrupters: Faith Changing Culture

"I started to create what I call a 'let-go list,' trying to figure out as I evolve as a person, as a community leader, and as a co-leader in my family, really taking an evaluation and assessing the things I need to shed and let go as I create the type of space to give myself and my life to things that matter most in the moment."Terence Lester is a speaker, activist, author, and thought leader in the realm of systemic poverty. He is the founder of Love Beyond Walls, a non-profit organization focused on poverty awareness and community mobilization. His nationwide campaigns have been featured on MLK50, CNN, Good Morning America, USA Today just to name a few. According to Terence, by reorganizing our time and getting into communities with others (even if it’s just one trusted person!), we can all show up and make a difference in the world--whether it’s “30 minutes a week or an hour every other week.” If “1000 people” can give “an hour of time,” Terence believes that the “compounded collective impact can make a huge difference.” Listen to this inspirational conversation as you make your New Year’s resolutions.Learn more about The Disrupters podcast at ivpress.com/disrupters.

Impact Over Intentions - A Conversation w/ Terence Lester

The Diversity Gap

Chapter Two: Impact Over Intentions Insight: The impact of your organizational culture on people of color is more important than your good intentions for diversity. Action: Prioritize hearing, believing, and following the leadership of people of color. Follow the lead of those most impacted by the problem. Terence is a speaker, an activist, an author and thought leader on systemic poverty. He’s known for nationwide campaigns that bring awareness to issues surrounding homelessness and economic inequality. His awareness campaigns have been featured on MLK50, CNN, Good Morning America, TVONE, Creative Mornings, USA Today, NBC, AJC, Black Enterprise, Rolling Out, Upworthy, and have been viewed by millions of people worldwide. In 2013, Terence founded the non-profit “Love Beyond Walls” and has helped hundreds of individuals experiencing homelessness and poverty to rebuild their lives. In 2019, Terence launched the Dignity Museum, the first shipping container museum in the U.S. specifically dedicated telling the stories of people who’ve experienced homelessness. Terence has written six books, and his new book, “When We Stand: The Power Of Seeking Justice Together,” released in May. He also holds four degrees and is working towards his Ph.D. at Union Institute & University in Public Policy & Social Change. So clearly, Terence is someone who has so much to teach us. But what I loved most about this conversation was how Terence pulled from his personal story and lived experiences to illuminate the nuances of living in a racialized society. This is a stellar conversation. Enjoy! Access episode transcript here. The Diversity Gap exists to help leaders pair their good intentions for diversity with true cultural change. You can order the book, The Diversity Gap, at www.thediversitygap.com. Bethaney Wilkinson is the Host and Executive Producer. Final Production is by Live Grace Productions.

7. Terence Lester: Distributing Dignity & Fighting Systemic Poverty

Hope Still Wins with Ben Higgins

“Home is so much more than four walls and a roof. Home is a place you feel seen, accepted, and like you belong.” - Terence Lester Terence is a speaker, author, activist, and thought leader in the realm of systemic poverty, and he’s interested in a world where everyone - everyone - is treated with dignity. In this conversation, Ben and Terence talk about interconnectedness and community, the true meaning and feeling of the word “home,” and the power of being seen. Plus, he introduces the idea of being an “accumulator” versus a “distributor,” and why inhabiting the role of distributor is ultimately more fulfilling for oneself and the world. Join the community on Instagram instagram.com/hopestillwins/! We’d love to hear your answer to the weekly question, "How can you be a "distributor" in your community this week? This summer?
