Who’s going to help us? who’s going to make a difference?

How would a person who comes from a marginalized group in society come to know that she had the power to transform that society?  How would a person with three or four degrees of “otherness” come to believe that her society is reliant on her to solve its most intractable problems – her voice matters, her contribution and her participation are imperative?
