“ In order to change/transform the world, [we] must change/transform [our]selves.” — Grace Lee Boggs
If we are to win, if we are to transform and bring forth the world we deserve, it’s going to take all of us. We are in a historical moment that requires us to connect with each other, expand our capacity to love and, find the direct points of intervention within the system — points where public pressure can disrupt the status quo and push for change.
As people who care about change, we have a responsibility to find points of intervention in our everyday lives. How do you confront systemic oppression at home, in your organization, in your community? What small, mighty actions can you take daily to move us closer to each other and the new world? Every small interaction holds the possibility of transformation.
For Resist, transforming ourselves is our point of intervention.
Read our multipart radical philanthropy series which served as a practice in taking radical responsibility for how we, Resist, have and continue to reinforce systemic oppression, as well as moved us into stepping more publicly into our capacity to change that:
