The crisis will continue to deepen, and there is a rather final date on climate change fast approaching. But I believe people committed to long, tedious organising can absolutely bring about the changes they desire. I don’t think it is easy, but it’s more than possible.
I became more aware of and committed to fighting a variety injustices. I became more aware of how class, privilege, mental health, disability and education affect people’s interactions with the world and with each other – including my own. I became simultaneously more hopeful and more despairing of ‘human nature’, if there is such a thing.
