the governor of MI is about as public as you can get. How do we achieve some level of solidarity in this time is great isolation. Seems like many people are active and think as we do but how do we connect?
Andrew Seles
01:37:37
Shea and Dorsey...so well said. Keep putting joy out there; speak out, be visible, don't give in to fear, support alternative media, be what you are for even more than what you are against...keep building the future!

Rahim Buford was paroled in 2015 after being caged for 26 consecutive calendar years. A native Nashvillian, Rahim has seen and felt how poverty negatively impacts people in the criminal legal system. Arrested at age 18, he spent 26 years of his life caged within seven different prisons across Tennessee. During that time, he completed course work for Lipscomp University, Ohio University, and Vanderbilit Divinty School. Rahim was a co-founder of Salt (Schools for Alternative Learning and Transformation), an inclusive undergraduate program that provides a safe learning space for non-tradtional students at Riverbend Prison. While incarcerated, he also self-published his own book, Save Your Own Life. Upon his release from prison, Rahim received a Presidential Scholarship to American Baptist College, and worked part time as an organizer for Children’s Defense Fund Nashville.

Excellent question Rahim to White women who voted for Trump. I saw one writer who wrote that for those women White Supremacy was more important than misogyny and patriarchy.
Betty She/her Baltimore
01:49:25
Or they were voting with their men so they were under the heel of misogyny.

Aljosie Harding

I believe that a personal spiritual practice is essential to stay fortified for being the change you want to see in the world. Howard Thurman’s books, Vincent Harding’s videos on “On Being” podcast bring us his presence and wisdom.

Micky, our values have to be the base of our work. Sometimes we have to search carefully for new opportunities or create opportunities.

Shirley Thompson she/her
02:04:42
Shea, I think we have to get clear about what the relationship can and should be between the generations, and how to make it happen. You're correct about WHY we need to do this, but HOW? I sometimes feel, as an elder, that I might be seen as an imposition by the younger activists. They're busy and often don't appear to have time to hammer out a solid relationship with the elders who want so much to be supportive,
Stephanie Guilloud
02:04:43
All generations have a role to play - it may be a different position

If you can build a base in your community and you can connect that base to other bases - we’ve got a thing going!! - Nelson Johnson
Aljosie Harding
02:07:22
Shirley, you’re right that intergenerational relationships have to be built. A lot of mutual listening is necessary.
Stephen Fogle
02:07:35
Thank you Nelson
Micky of Agaric
02:07:37
Aljosie yes values are the base of our work.. yet we are using the tools of a plantation owner like zoom and Google etc. these platforms are the ones that bind us to injustice and we need to organize to get off the plantation yet not many know how to.
Shirley Thompson she/her
02:07:49
I agree, Stephanie. It would be great if we could make time to figure out what those relationships need to be. I believe we elders are willing to follow the young folks, but we need to have the conversations to clarify our role.
