showered and cooled down. It was hot out there today! Thank you goes out many people who helped me get through the day, make sure I didn't cross over into the permitted area (so I didn't get arrested as I was told would happen) and did their part to make this next step towards a more culturally competent Orlando Health a success. (I will formally thank these contributors after I receive their permission to do so.)
A success not because there is some magic number of petitions signatures it will produce.
A success not because all of the sudden tomorrow Orlando Health is going to finally make the changes outlined in the petition (though that would be awesome).
But a success because every step bringing attention to this movement is a step closer to the the vision outlined in the petition.
The image above shows me 'wearing' all the names of the petition that were signed by earlier this week. Imagine - with your help how I will look when we get to 500 signatures - or a thousand.
Keep encouraging people to sign the petition to encourage Orlando Health to be more culturally competent. Your voice matters. Every step towards this end matters.
Thanks for reading.

PS I will be editing the video footage from today and posting that very soon so you can see more of the impact the 115 people I was wearing had on today's activity.
