“Changing the structure and rules of the global economy will require a mass movement based on messages of compassion, justice and equality as well as collaborative and democratic processes. If we stay positive, inclusive and democratic we have a truly historic opportunity to build a global movement for social justice.”
— Medea Benjamin
This week, we dive into a quote by Medea Benjamin to reframe this time of crisis as a collective opportunity. In our current times of uncertainty about the climate, the economy, public health, and more, it is natural to want to go back to how things were. But these crises we face are a result of how things were.
In order to create lasting change, we discuss how we need to look forward to a new way of thinking, one that includes collaboration and dialogue. Including diverse opinions makes sure the new future we build will be inclusive, addressing issues from as many sides as possible. From there, we can integrate these changes into our daily lives.
