Tonja Lesmeister ( Traveling With A Purpose, Choosing to World School vs Public School, Creating Space to Reset)
Tonja Lesmeister is a Social Worker by training but has gone on to be a powerful advocate of serving marginalized groups and doing her part to stand up against social injustice. The Rainbow Tree team was to be headed to Jamaica with her Traveling With A Purpose mission team but due to COVID19, that trip was canceled. Tonja shares her story and decision of pulling her youngest child out of the public school system. Though the timing of this episode is coincidental in nature in relation to the death of George Floyd, perhaps it is the perfect timing to begin to understand the depth and seriousness of racism in this country. Thank you for listening and thank you Tonja.
