If we strive for liberation, we should act as accomplices, not allies. Liberation is dependent on each other, colonization and formation of social organization based on hierarchy has tricked us into being separate. Learn more about accomplices, not allies here.

LOVE 
Prioritize care and healing (physical, mental, spiritual) for peoples’ resilience. Build long-term relationships of accountability- be responsive to the experiences, voices, needs, and perspectives of people across a spectrum of identities. Do more listening, less speaking and planning


INVEST IN AND SUPPORT CULTURAL RESISTANCE AND EXPRESSION
Through art, music, poetry, dance
