WHAT IS WEST OAKLAND STORIES POSITIVE FEELING MOVEMENT (WOSPFM)?
We elders at WOSPFM have been getting some questions from the public that we would like to answer proudly and publicly, for all those who are following along in our journey together. In this “Mailbag” series, we’ll take some of the frequently asked questions about WOSPFM and “No Negative Speak” and give you the answers about what drives us and what drives our organization to achieve our mission.
What’s the deal with WOSPFM?
WOSPFM is about using the power of positive stories to inspire you followers and readers to get involved and go above and beyond sitting back and telling everyone how negative the world can be.
As an elder of the community, I believe storytelling will have a more positive impact on Black people than almost anything because it’s a rich tradition we all can relate to. On top of that, almost all of us can find examples of ourselves in the stories we hear.
Now, the challenge is to take things a step further and find some ways you can get involved in becoming a solution to longstanding issues in our communities.
We elders wholeheartedly believe you really can make positive change happen on both an individual basis and on a massive scale if you approach this journey with a positive commitment to yourself.
That’s all we have for this installment of the Mailbag series. If you have more questions you’d like for us to answer or other subjects you want to hear us speak about, we’d love to hear about it in the comments section. Until then, remember to show love to your neighbors and show love to yourself.
