Envisioning A state of Care in a Time of COVID-19

Posted to Instagram by Southern Poverty Law Center: https://www.instagram.com/p/B-zmmXYF9uj/?igshid=1cpkggo3oktal. Image of Dolores Huerta, Labor leader and civil rights activist stating: “Every single day we sit down to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner, and at our table we have food that was planted, picked or harvested by a farm worker. Why is that the people who do the most sacred work in our nation are the most oppressed, the most exploited?”

Every night, from 7:00pm to 7:02pm, it begins. There’s hooting and hollering, whistling, horn-blowing, the banging of pots and pans, beeping from passing cars, and even a parked car backfiring over and over and over again. Interrupting the sirens of ambulances, these are attempts by the residents who are advised and able to stay home, to support those who are not.
