1. Social justice work has next-to-nothing to do with what we are paid to do. What we are paid to do has to do with capitalism. Social justice work is about how we are, who we are, what we say, and what we do, all the time, but in particular during those precious moments when we are not caught up in the capitalist machine, not producing or consuming or selling or purchasing. Those moments in which we are just being . . . just connecting with one another, talking, sharing space . . . who we are in those moments is everything, our true work.
