I am a Sociology Ph.D. Candidate at the University of Washington.


"Social movements generate new knowledge, new theories, and new questions. The most radical ideas often grown out of concrete intellectual engagement with the problems of aggrieved populations confronting systems of oppression."

Robin D.G. Kelley, Freedom Dreams

"Progressive social movements do not simply produce statics and narrative of oppression; rather, the best ones do what great poetry always does: transport us to another place, complete us to relive horrors, and more importantly, enable us to imagine a new society."

Robin D.G. Kelley, Freedom Dreams

"Everything worthwhile is done with other people."

Mariame Kaba

"Hope doesn’t preclude feeling sadness or frustration or anger or any other emotion. Hope isn’t an emotion, you know? Hope is not optimism. Hope is a discipline… we have to practice it every single day."

Mariame Kaba
