A crucial & fascinating aspect of this current reality for me has been the concept of mutual aid becoming so relevant & resonant during a time of uncertainty & melancholia.
Mutual aid is a principle & practice I have believed in & for a long time; believing it had the possibility to transform our perspectives & actions, our relationships with one another.
It has been an inspiring silver lining to see people distributing essentials, support & care to one another as a means of alleviating the duress of this epidemic. Solidarity driven mutual care is wonderful.
In the past year, I have both received & offered this instrumental practice of love & direct action.
I appreciate what we have built collectively. This is a present which has created many unique & enduring collective reverberations.
