Dear Mr. Walker,
In the midst of giving and taking final exams, I debated long and hard if I could even attend COSEBOC (Gathering) 2014. In the end, I packed up my books, computer, and tests and came. It was amazing! The Chicago conference was good but this year was even better. I met so many excellent people doing great work from whom I could learn but also share my knowledge. I want to thank you so much for organizing this Gathering. I know it could not have been easy but it was so worth it. You and your group do amazing work and allow us all to benefit, re-charge, and re-enter the world with renewed vigor. Please accept my deepest appreciation for all that you do. I am not here for the moment. I am here for the movement.
Sincerely, Chriscia Jackson
