My politics are centered on strengthening the margins and making sure that we hold each other accountable because, even within the margins, it’s a warzone, y’all. I know so much about my own oppressors and I forgot to take the time to collectively heal with my own communities. Reaching out to my communities in order to call them in — and out when necessary — and mobilize them to combat the ways that we have been complicit in the oppression of others has become a necessary part of what it means for me to practice radical love."
