things i believe in…

22Apr09

i believe:

… interpersonal and structural racism still exist
… that racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, fatphobia and xenophobia effect the experiences of many people
… learning our histories is important to think about liberation for our future
… everyone should be able to make informed and consensual decisions about the type of sex they want to have
… every woman should be able to make an informed, consensual, and non-coerced decision about their reproductive futures; when and if they want to have children
… folks should be able to access reproductive resources, educational resources, and health resources regardless of class
… in self-determination
… that those most effected by an issue should be the ones in control of the organizing around it
… in being an ally
… in challenging my own privilege and complicating my own marginalization
… SEX!
… in sharing both knowledge and resources
… I am accountable to my family, friends, and community
… we are not always meant to feel comfortable

… using privilege to uplift others. (Deivid)
… that we use prisons as a replacement for good social policy in almost every area – education, healthcare, immigration, etc – and we will never have a just society until they are abolished (Mai)

LOVE the additions…
do folks have others?
