Why does Cancel Culture exist?

Let’s start by saying the phrase “cancel culture” is politically divisive. We are a nonpartisan nonprofit. We have no interest in favoring any political party or ideology. Instead, we want to talk about WHY people want to hold others accountable and a range of accountability motives that may connect with both sides of the cancel culture issue.

Here are four accountability motives that can help you understand why people act the way they do:

Next Unemployment
Transition Program
Starts April 5th

Are you or someone you know looking for help finding a new job?

Because I said I would is offering a six-week resiliency program designed for people who have lost their job due to the pandemic. Our goal is to lead participants to life-sustaining employment while improving mental health outcomes during this stressful period. This no cost program will provide the resources and support to help find that next job.

Past graduates have stated that they gained tremendous resources that saved them time and energy researching on their own. Join us (or encourage someone to do so) to help find that next job.

Time is running out for our next session. There are only five days left to sign-up!

This Unemployment Transition Program is made possible by the generosity of our donors. Space is limited. The next session starts Monday, April 5th.

Promise Stories

Honoring the Magnitude
of Her Loss

Millions of people have lost their jobs due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Hailey from Minnesota was no different. After joining the Unemployment Transition Program, she was to select a Capstone Project and work with someone that recently lost a loved one to COVID-19 to create a memorial.

Bruce & Pam were married for
more than 40 years.

Hailey chose to work with Pam, who had recently lost her husband Bruce. They had been married for over 40 years and Pam was unable to have any kind of memorial or service to commemorate his passing.

Pam was happy to talk with Hailey and relive memories, talk about her love for Bruce and most importantly have someone recognize the magnitude of her loss. In their discussions, Pam brought up Bruce’s love for geology. Since Heidi is a glass artist she decided to put the two together.

By creating a beautiful glass piece that connected her talent and Bruce’s passion, she was able to give Pam something special to remember and memorialize her husband’s life.
