On the 1st of each month, I share links to some of the best posts from my blog, Notes from an Aspiring Humanitarian.
Here are selected notes from March 2017.
“What’s considered true and ideal is often more of a function of power than universal reality. Prejudice combined with the social power and influence to support it creates the various isms that exist today. In this video produced for everyday feminism, YouTuber, Writer, and Public Speaker Riley J. Dennis speaks on Linguicism.”
“Take a listen to this podcast interview on interfaith understanding featuring my colleague katie gordon. Katie produces media on interfaith, spirituality, social justice, public affairs, media literacy, and more.
You can find some of katie’s writings at her blog, katie gordon: none and all.”
“Whether you’ve seen it or not at this point, “Get Out” is not a piece of media that should be consumed without discussion and reflection…”
“Institutions of higher education are not exempt from the impacts of systems of oppression, nor are they blameless in perpetuating those systems. Building more equitable communities requires a commitment to be critical of the structures and ourselves. In recognition of this ongoing work I share two articles for digestion, reflection, and action.”
“Trans 101 is a starter pack designed to help support trans people around you!
It’s all about helping people better understand what it means to be trans, and how to make the world and better, safer, happier place for trans and gender diverse people!”
