You believe that expanding our capacity to love ourselves and each other leads to futures rooted in care, agency, and sustainability. You are dedicated to learning the lessons love has to offer. You believe that an analysis of power, consent, and boundaries is essential to a radical love ethic. You are here to hold your heart softly. Thank you for being here.
