The Future or Futurism?
by Christine Platt
Here for the collective liberation For the black and brown solidarity For the true allyship beyond posting quotes and writing checks
Here for the people who understand we cannot do this work alone Because we need each other
To dream and reimagine what’s possible To redefine and rewrite harmful laws, policies, and practices To redesign consumer goods and manufacturing processes through the lens of regenerative design To replace slogans and taglines with actionable steps To reinvent, reinforce, and rejoice in what’s possible
Here for the people committed to educating and empowering ourselves and the next generation Because we need each other
