I think the most important thing is education. That’s something that leaders of the past definitely thought was very important for everyone to understand. Ignorance is very powerful, and it can be very compelling if you think you know something and you don’t. So I think the way we pick up is just by spreading as much correct information as possible, and just making sure when you speak on something you’re educated to the fullest extent, so that when history is passed down, when things are written in books, we weren’t confused, and we know what was happening.

Bio

My recent social justice work has addressed the impact of injustices going on with the people in Palestine. I have close friends who have been personally affected, and my school has been extremely active in the protests. I have spent my time attending the teach-ins, walk outs, and supporting the tenting while it was still active.
