Cultivating Respect

with Darcy Castro

Cultivating Respect with Darcy Castro is a year-long initiative to promote Crown CARES (Creating a Respectful Environment in Society), the national platform of American Women of Service.
You’re invited to come with me as I listen, learn and share about practical ways we can create respectful environments in our own little pockets of the world. Each month you’ll have access to a new article and podcast featuring honest, thought-provoking ideas that aim to inspire and foster positive, respectful communities… from the aisles of the grocery store to the halls of congress (and dare I say, internet comment forums!)

The national platform of the American Women of Service is Crown CARES - Creating a Respectful Environment in Society. This core value is why I chose to participate in this system. Here's what I believe and how I interpret this calling: 

Pray/meditate/practice self care, then put your feet to the pavement - Be kind; Listen more; Desire to learn; Be patient; Turn your cheek, unclench your fist; Resist falling prey to polarizing, demonizing messaging; Open your mind; LOVE ONE ANOTHER. Especially in this climate we currently find ourselves, we should remember to make this a priority. Working together to create a more respectful environment begins within our own hearts. Be kind to yourself, and share that with others. Peace, friends. ❤️
