EP 4 | The Spirituality of Growing a Community with Laura Dungan
Laura Dungan is a long time family friend who, whenever I hear the words community organizer I think of her. Laura has been a community organizing for some time and understands this task as a sacred responsibility. She is the Community Outreach Director and co-founder of The Seed House, la Casa de la Semilla, a non-profit that facilitates community leaders and organization with the capacities for sustainable justice and equality through dialogue, creative expression, and collective action. Laura is a musician who believes that music and the arts can be a tool for social change. As we talked on the podcast she names the importance of people’s lived experience and why those stories should be the foundation for community organizing. For many, music has been an afterthought in community organizing, but Laura offers a depth that contextualizes the importance of community development through creative expression. For Laura, the stories of people inspire and give purposes to her music. In one of her songs she lifts up in the podcast “If not now when.” If you are interested in connecting with Laura or donating the Seed house please visit their website. Or their Facebook @The SeedHouseLaCasadelaSemilla. Thank you for listening and until next time may we continue in love and act with compassion.
