Harm mitigation can be our whole damn life of social service or it can be a part of the work of social service. I wish I had more words to communicate how even in an Obama Admin this work was hard, but this world and political actors have made that world an impossible firefight.

So many of our resources are going directly to preventing loss of life. That is right. And there is a whole world where we can be working on building a new world and doing what we need to do to defeat the existing one.

It's not that I saw perfection or even total peace in a different administration. I didn't. But this has been drinking water out of a firehose.

I saw this and the intentional white patriarchal supremacy that is being installed into every level of government is breathtaking.

This will have tangible life consequences. For all of us. For decades.

My friend @SayuBhojwani says this with so much more intention here and I would add it's not just Joe Biden but this SYSTEM will not save us but leaving these ghouls in charge will certainly destroy so many more of us.
