One week from today, the fabulous social awareness + justice storytelling project Listen For A Change is holding their first-ever gala: A Night In Bold! If you have the ability to swing it, you should come. I'll be attending, cool people are coming, and extra-cool people like founder Thai Chu (who, moons ago, used to work in Leo's classroom) will be speaking.
