Democracy conversation cards with a quote from Sonia Sotomayor

It is important for all of us to appreciate where we come from and how that history has really shaped us in ways that we might not understand. —Sonia Sotomayor

This month we turn to the wisdom of US Supreme Court Justice, Sonia Sotomayor, for inspiration. Sotomayor’s quote is featured in our Conversation Cards on Democracy, Freedom, Equality, and Common Good. This set of 52 cards includes quotes from a broad spectrum of national leaders, both historical and contemporary, and is designed to encourage reflection, conversation, and action. Order or download a free set of cards here.

Reflect: Reflect on where you come from and how you have been shaped by your personal history.

Act: Write a letter to your ancestors thanking them for what you have received from them. Then write a letter to future generations spelling out what you want your legacy to them to be.
