Sulma Arias takes us back to the basics of organizing by focusing on what matters. No matter the context, Sulma reminds us that the fundamentals require us to invest in people, to listen more than we speak to guide our actions and to sustain ourselves and others for the long-term work. In this episode, George talks with Sulma as she begins a new role as the Executive Director of People’s Action and discusses how she got started and where she goes from here.
