So, I am back in school after a more than 4 year hiatus, looking at white supremacy, colonialism and the prison industrial complex through a public health lens/as public health hazards, in a Health Arts and Sciences program at Goddard College. I dropped out to organize and now I’m trying to balance both organizing and school – and make the two intersect more than I was able to in the past. This means I want my schoolwork to be useful to the movement and so I am seeking ways to share it out in community. Here are some of the incredible resources I’ve been privileged enough to have access to in the last two months…
