I started reading Community care & relationship building combats burnout in political movements. Oof, it’s hitting hard, in a good way.

Strong relationships are the molecules that make up strong communities and strong communities are free. That should be our guiding light. Interdependence. To lay the soil for collective liberation, we need to build liberating relationships today where we enact and practice the values of the world we are building. The more we depend on each other for survival, the less we depend on the state and the more ungovernable we become. This is the fight. In the process of building life-sustaining relationships, we will dismantle systems, not the other way around.
