Introduction
Community leaders fighting for social change in Colombia’s poorest slums face a unique obstacle: their families. The long hours and high stress of community leadership can strain family relations to the point that many dynamic leaders are forced to give up activism to preserve their marriages and their families. Audes Estella Jiménez Gonzalez has found that the best way to give leaders more family time without them having to give up activism is to make activism a family affair.
