Activist Aspirations Enthusiastic
Political Leaning Very Liberal
Wild Fact About Me I'm author of a school library book about demonic possession.
My Philosophy I'm a radical for love. For me, activism is about confronting unchallenged prejudices and widening the circle of empathy. Activism that does not meet these goals contributes to a culture of dehumanization, and subsequently holds no interest for me.
What Gives Me Hope Being pleasantly surprised by people I'd written off as beyond hope.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Sign an executive order stating that enforcement of drug laws against nonviolent low-level offenders are the lowest law enforcement priority, and commute the sentences of prior offenders—effectively ending the War on Drugs.
What/who changed my life and why Andrea Smith's "Conquest" really blew my mind. I'm still processing it.
Quotation "Hunger allows no choice
To the citizen or the police;
We must love one another or die."

~ W.H. Auden
