Kristi Krock
Director of Operations - Initiative Network
Kristi Krock is an avid fan of the city of Dallas who has helped develop and grow Initiative Network, where she now serves as Director of Operations. She's passionate about local politics, strategy development, and good design. Her hope is to see the Church (all Christians across all aspects of culture) step into their role of pushing back darkness– starting in individual hearts, then moving out to communities and the city. In Dallas as it is in Heaven.

Limit Free Speech If It Means Less Hate Speech - Millennials
The path to a better and more inclusive education system could be paved with some surprising opinions among millennials, a generation often used as shorthand for progressive thinking, according to a new report from the GenForward Survey.

Nearly half of the millennials polled in a recent University of Chicago survey say that colleges should limit freedom of speech "in extreme cases," like slurs and other intentionally offensive language and costumes that stereotype certain racial and ethnic groups. And African American millennials, in particular, demonstrated a lot of support for charter schools. That's an opinion that seemingly flies in the face of the NAACP's efforts to curb charter school growth.
