Grieving is a Revolutionary Act

Loneliness. Meaninglessness. Poverty. Violence and the threat of violence. Despair. It is so painful to be alive within the social systems in which we are embedded, yet there are few opportunities for genuinely feeling this pain. Connecting with that suffering is the grounds of solidarity and the fuel for social transformation. Come grieve with us in community.
