"As we continue the work towards dismantling white supremacy, I urge you to pay attention. I challenge each of you to unpack, unlearn, address how you’ve been subjected to harm and perpetuated harm in this context. Don’t be fooled, remember white supremacy is clever, it’s seasoned, it’s why it’s survived for so long. It needs the model minority myth, it needs to manipulate us, through racism, classism, ableism, ageism, capitalism, homophobia, transphobia etc. Look at your own story, your family story, look at the ways in which this system has fooled you into not seeing the truth of your own agency, your own power."

"Growing up a queer Brown kid I didn't have a lot (or any) representation.

And now, I'm clear no matter how much money I make, no matter the things I own or the people I know, my impact is what is most important to me."

How our intersectional identities inform our personal definitions of sustainability

August 11, 2020 4 min read

"I have likened solving issues related to sustainability to solving a Rubik’s cube. We cannot accomplish anything by looking at it from only one perspective. We must examine problems from all possible angles to better understand how the different parts interact with each other. By ignoring intersectionality, we fail to access a more holistic perspective of ourselves, others, and the problems we are trying to solve."

Making it work

I think the time is right to acknowledge that despite this unprecedented challenge, we are - in fact - making it work.  We’re doing it. Every day, sometimes painfully, angrily, and sadly, but we are. How many of you have done something in the past 8 weeks you never thought was possible?

"Women have powerful, empathetic, courageous, insightful solutions, ideas, and art that will never be shared unless we learn to trust ourselves. What will teach our daughters? Will we tell them how they “should” be or will we tell them to follow their truth because the world needs them."

"I have found myself vacillating between panic and calm rationality, and I know I’ve been here before.  I lived in NYC during 9/11 and I watched the first tower collapse upon itself from my bedroom window, a mushroom cloud of humans and debris billowing out in my direction.  I could not believe what I was seeing and half expected the empire state building to open up so that superman could fly out.  What I saw was so improbable I thought anything was possible.  The coronavirus pandemic feels an awful lot like that, and I know now what I also knew then. Life as we have known it is over."
