“Our work is community work, it is collective work, it is communal work, it is feminist work, it is social
justice work that fights actively against racialized ageism, racism, sexism, classism, ableism,
homophobia, transphobia, and xenophobia. It is sustained work and a responsibility that we carry to
forge a better world for further generations.”
