GODFREY – “ALL THAT I CAN FIX” Author Crystal Chan visited Lewis and Clark Community College February 28 to speak about the path to publication, justice activism and writing compassion. She facilitated two lectures in Reid Memorial Library, and both were well attended by students. Chan talked about compassionate activism as a commitment to actualizing the equality of all people.

“As a society, we have been taught to turn a deaf ear to one another, and when we do so, we teach our children to do the same… But, listening can be transformative…. It has expanded my world. Listening has allowed me to have empathy,” she said.
