Searching for what it means to be a white person doing the work of racial justice is an ongoing (and lifelong) journey for me:
To become a better ancestor (thank you, Leesa Renee Hall)
To reclaim my own humanity
To really show up for the People of the Global Majority that I love because I don't think you can love someone and passively (or actively) participate in their oppression
To work in solidarity for universal liberation.
This poem was birthed from that searching.
