Cris Lira – Being in the limelight

It’s not always easy for ROP staff to strike the right balance between encouraging people to step up in their leadership roles and providing appropriate support for people to do so, especially when staff are juggling so many responsibilities (such as coordinating a 7-day, 50-mile Walk with hundreds of participants!). Former ROP Board Chair, Cris Lira, reflects on her readiness (or lack thereof) to serve as ROP’s Board Chair, and shares a painful experience from ROP’s week-long Walk for Truth, Justice and Community in 2005.
