About the Founder

People excite Sam. From children to adults, Sam finds such hope, comfort, and excitement just by being with people. His hopes and dreams are to play a role in something larger than himself: to be a part of a movement for a more equitable world, where everyone is seen with dignity, where we are all honored for the gifts and histories we bring, and we all engage in the transformational work of seeing ourselves, seeing each other, and building peace.
