#250posts24hrsAAPI - 85: We Just Do What We Do

Sunday, May 21, 2017

I've gotten to know of, or met, a decent amount of people active in their communities. Passionate about what they do. And I have a lot of respect for all of them.

Community organizers on the ground - you have to work with logistics. You have to understand what pressure points you can hit. You have to take that time to just understand what you're doing and get people motivated and working with you.

Academics working in fields or subjects of marginalized communities to make equity better. To calculate the data and responses so we can understand with more precision and certainty.

Artists and writers who want to help add more voice in their craft, share a vision for their community, doing it through the arts, sometimes with such visceral and focused clarity.

Diverse and rich with authenticity.
