Description

What does an honest, authentic, genuine movement feel like or act like when so many of us have been burned out, kicked out, shut out, and pushed out of community spaces? How do we reconcile individual and collective trauma within activist spaces somewhere between accountability and compassion? If we are laboring for liberation, we have to start in our own communities. Confronting settler-colonialism, white supremacy, transmisogyny, ableism, and all other oppressions begins in the movement. Let us talk about rage and devastation, trauma and healing, and the meaning of active love and justice. Let us talk about the illusion of perfection and the activist's overcomer narrative. Let us talk about what Disability Justice means for building better, stronger, more authentic movements.
