The #StopDevaluation Movement is for those who have the courage to go against the grain of a culture that loves to point fingers, pre-judge, and put people down. Instead, our goal is to confront prejudice and build bridges through listening, learning, sharing, and confirming the irrevocable value in every unique human being.

    Taking a break!

    Taking a break!

    Taking a break manuscript: After three seasons of the #StopDevauation Podcast I have decided to take a break and allow time to build a larger repertoire of interviews with value-generating leaders who are making a difference in their world.

    There are 140 episodes for many to go back and re-listen because they carry such depth from individuals who have overcome horrific experiences of prejudice, devaluation, and dehumanization as well as established leaders who use their platforms for the good of humanity. Actually, the entire Unmasking Prejudice: Silencing the Internal Voice of Bigotry audio book is found in previous episodes. The whole audio book!

    I’m not going anywhere and the #StopDevaluation movement continues to grow with greater impact. You can find hundreds of videos on the YouTube channel, follow us on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook and check out the website at StopDevaluation.com to download free eBooks.

    I want to thank all of you who have been faithful listeners, I would love to hear from you at stopdevaluation@gmail.com

    Continue to be a part of this movement of courageous voices who will continue to build bridges across the cultural divides through validation. Many who have experienced injustice and devaluation are looking for YOU, who are willing to be an instrument of justice using their power, their voice, their platforms for the good of others. Thank you for demonstrating love, honor, and validation to all that you meet.
