What Does Abundance Mean To You?
“Abundance is the dance and struggle between theory and the practice of love; where love has existed for ourselves, our communities, and where we want it to exist in our daily lives, communities, and futures. Maximizing our theory of change with realistic practice, maximizing our opportunity to utilize our privilege and oppression to continue, create and redistribute access to the future we all deserve.”
