I chose community. I truly believe that extraordinary and wonderful things happen when people come together in a common goal and a genuine desire to make things better. Addressing problems and testing solutions rarely succeed when done individually; it’s when we come together to share big ideas that we can move towards an equitable future. There’s something powerful in collaborative movement and shared responsibility that can’t be replicated individually.
