A tremendous article, tremendous project, and tremendous people.
“The vital energy of social justice largely derives from an ethic of compassion, even as some of our visceral responses undeniably come from rage and wounds. As cultural healers, critical academics, and engaged activists, we are called to be invested in transformation through radical love–for ourselves and each other–and difficult dialogue..
We are called to be fiercely honest, compassionate, and gracious in our discourse. Radical love can hold our rage, our sadness, and our grief over the ways we have failed each other, and may continue to fail each other. Without love, we remain fractured beyond measure.”
This is absolutely true.
