As COVID-19 spreads in the U.S many of us are asking: How do we connect, organize, and deepen community amidst the necessary public health practice of physical distancing? How do we combat the spread of isolation, othering, and fear? How do we learn from BIPOC, queer, and disabled communities on surviving pandemics and caring for each other? How do we stand in solidarity, mutuality, and community care, at this time of social emergency, and use what we learn toward making the systemic change?
This is a moment for us to recognize our collective interdependence and to strengthen our practices of collective care.
