78: Beyond Passion [PODCAST]

On this episode of the Ending Human Trafficking Podcast, we are featuring a special presentation by Reverend David L. Myers, Senior Advisor for Department of Homeland Security’s Center for Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships. Appointed by President Obama in 2009, Rev. Myers works closely with FEMA to provide disaster relief and builds efforts to partner with local and national faith-based leaders.

Rev. Myers shares with hundreds of Vanguard Students about their role as an “uncommon dataset” in touching the sorrow in our world. He challenges all of us working to end social injustice to take a second look at our passion, commitment and a desire for justice. Rev. Myers shares that “Passion must be transformed into professional discipline” indicating the importance of using skills learned in order to fight the many injustices that drive our personal missions and passions.
