“The arc of history may bend towards justice, but it is not
without the actions of individuals and groups coming together in better relation with one another. As a person of intersecting marginalizations
and privileges, what happens in the political and economic realms
directly impacts me, people I love and communities of which I am a part.
The great impact and beauty of collective mutual aid and healing that
I have seen first-hand inspires me to support partnership and
caring economies in my work and life”.
