Description of Activity
Distribute Taking It Home. Invite everyone to form a circle and join hands. Ask participants to reflect quietly for a moment and then share a word or phrase that describes one insight or takeaway from this workshop.

We are at a unique moment in history. The eradication of poverty is within our reach, as is a more sustainable and equitable world.
Extinguish the chalice.
