Carrie Foote, PhD inducted into the Love Superhero Hall of Gratitude in May 2018. Carrie is an Associate Professor of Sociology at Indiana University – Purdue University Indianapolis. Carrie chairs the HIV Modernization Movement, working to update the the Indiana HIV criminalization laws that not only contribute to HIV-related stigma but are also just bad public health. Whether teaching in the classroom; advocating at the local, state or national level; or presenting to audiences of a variety of backgrounds – Carrie brings a fearlessness and relentless pursuit of justice to her every breath. True, Carrie has a huge heart. But it is her brave facing of inequity that astounds. The world is a better place with Carrie leading us.
About the Love Superhero Hall of Gratitude
“The plain fact is that the world does not need more successful people, but it does desperately need more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers, and lovers of every kind. It needs people who live well in their places. It needs people of moral courage willing to join the fight to make the world habitable and humane.” David Orr
I deeply admire those who “live well in their places.” The ordinary and the unsung who offer to the world the very best parts of themselves without expectation.
This is a beautiful expression of love in her calm, persistent, generous manner – offering a ripple of change (a metamorphosis) to the world.
Inductees to the Love Superhero Hall of Gratitude are caped in recognition of their contributions to a love-filled world.
