What are your individual core values?
As an individual, I have always been concerned with sustainability, sometimes to an unhealthy level of obsession. We can only control so much in this chaotic world! Currently, I eat a plant-based diet, and am mindful of my carbon footprint. I am moderately politically active, attending protests when possible and contacting my representatives often. I also am lightly active in a group called Herbs for Activists, which donates herbal care packages to BIPOC folx in my area. The last few years I've had to tweak my view on activism to be more care-oriented. It's so easy to be angry, but I think the solutions for a better world rely on us being kind to one another.
