#HowICameToClimate: I grew up in an activist fam. Mom was an elected official+attorney fighting police violence. As a teen I was active in the peace movement+witnessed much eco-activism connected to that (mostly white). In my 20s I did black community organizing.

In the early '00s, I co-faciltated a bunch of activist spaces w/ Van Jones+Julia Butterfly that connected racial+economic justice w/ eco activism. Back then, I was primarily an artist+occasional facilitator. Most of my energy went into making art that has strong social commentary
At the time, I wasn't part of any particular political organizations, but I had strong relationships with activists in many movements+folks knew they could call on me for different stuff: performing, teaching, facilitating. Folks commissioned me to write poems for their movements

1/8 My favorite #quote by #JosephStalin, which explains the scientific, #DialecticalMaterialist explanation of true freedom in material reality, not just as an abstract ideal. #StalinIsBack #StalinLives #JVStalin #Stalin #StalinQuote #StalinQuotes #Truth #MELS #MarxismLeninism
2/8 Having an #objective, #rational, #ScientificSocialist, #Dialectical, & #Materialist viewpoint allows us to accurately see & evaluate & analyze #Truth & #Reality as they truly materially exist in this universe.
3/8 An idealistic, dogmatic viewpoint, which capitalists have, however, makes one irrational enough to 'see' freedom where freedom stays trapped on a piece of paper while people are oppressed in their actual lived lives.
