There’s a lot of folks struggling to break systems that define and limit us. That’s good. Let’s own the fact that dissatisfaction is NOT the end. It is the beginning.
Our dissatisfaction must be coupled with a vision of what we DO want, and leadership should be pioneering new ways to achieve what we want. We must define and articulate what we want, build what we want, and only pause if someone gets in our way.
When we protest, speak out, and fight oppression, we are not asking to be given what we want. We are telling them we’re coming to get it.
