Frank Mugisha is one of those people that is changing the world. We all are in our own ways, but Frank is having a global impact. A gay Ugandan, he has dedicated his life to working for LGBT rights and has literally risked his life for the cause.
It is an honor to have been brought in on a project involving him at the office. We are providing pro-bono consulting to him and today was our first phone call with him. My supervisor and I spoke with him for an hour about his needs, which are mostly related to his PowerPoint presentation that he uses to illustrate his mission around the world. We are going to help organize it, beautify it, and consolidate it. From what I can see, the order needs some thought and we will need to add a slide at the end that states what the audience can do to help. There is currently no call to action in the presentation and when we meet with him in person we will have to solidify what that call is (or calls are).
It is humbling just to speak on the phone with him and I am so excited for this opportunity!
