In your activism, do you view houseless people as mouths to feed and bodies to clothe, or as allies in the struggle? Do they have a way of knowing when your events are (maybe through printed schedules at FNB), know they're welcome, and have people to ride with? Can you hold a free skool and share useful skills with them, and learn from them too? Can you offer them fulfilling volunteer work at your infoshop, community garden, etc?
Are you giving them solidarity, or charity?
The problem with politics is that every candidate holds positions not just that I disagree with but that are so clearly completely disqualifying from public office. If I pick who I like best (right now it’s Warren) she still supports things that, if a friend supported them, we couldn’t be friends anymore.

I’m scared to post here more bc I put a lot of myself on birdsite and the site was/is very toxic. I’m not sure I’m ready to open my heart to another social network fully.
Generalistic and moderated instance.
