A Year of Learning How to Care

  • The absence of care is settler colonialism that allows us to disregard the way the land we live on is stolen by genocide. That the buildings we occupy were built from enslavement.
  • The absence of care is the ability to be imperialist, White Supremacist, racist, sexist, heterosexist, ableist.
  • The absence of care is…in many ways, why the world we live in causes so much harm to so many.
  • Loving the humanity of every single person, and recognizing how much work I have to do to be able to begin to do that authentically.
  • Taking the time to hold myself accountable for the deeply entrenched White Supremacy within me, the colonialism, the imperialism I have internalized to survive.
  • Taking time, every day, to learn more, and then to apply those learnings in a loving way to everyone I interact with.
