Rhidale Dotson, 

a leader, creative, teacher, mental healthcare provider, life coach, writer, mentor, friend, the reason A Theory of Change exists, and overall wonderful person. 

This poster is based of a photograph of Rhidale playing keyboard by Rebecca Geist, one of our members! 

Using inspiration from Adrienne Maree Brown's Emergent Strategy as our framework, A Theory of Change is committed to finding solutions towards the reduction and prevention of harm caused by prison, poverty and prejudice. 

"Many of us have been socialized to understand that constant growth, violent competition, and critical mass are the ways to create change. But emergence shows us that adaption and evolution depend more on critical, deep, and authentic connections, a thread that can be tugged for support and resilience. The quality of connection between the nodes in the patterns."

(Brown, 14).

A conversation with Dr. Apryl Alaxander, April Jones, Tyrone Glover, Stacy Putka, Phil Weisner and Rhidale Dotson about race in the prison system. 

This discussion was the first of many to come in correspondence with Defy Colorado.
