I’m very eager to see people stepping up, speaking out, making their voices heard, rendering themselves visible under their own terms, setting boundaries, and demanding what is rightfully theirs. I think this is where there is possibility: in rejecting the status quo for the failure that it is, connecting and building solidarity with movements around the world, and reclaiming our future.
