    Learning to be an Ally in Indigenous Activism

    April 8th, 2021     by Raiyah Patel     Comments

    “I had good intentions, but quickly learned that I could not understand Shannen’s struggle. I could never experience the pain and injustice caused by colonization’s legacy, or the unfairness of having inadequate schooling. So how could I confront the injustice I witnessed?

    A Tale Of Two Spectrums: The Challenges of Being Both Queer and Autistic

    January 25th, 2021     by Lucinda Thee     Comments

    “Many autistic people may come out as LGBTQ+ while some of their neurotypical peers may not because of two traits that many autistic people share: a lack of adherence to social norms and a strong sense of honesty.

However, LGBTQ+ autistic people who occupy these two dual spectrums face massive challenges in their day-to-day lives.” READ MORE

    January 10th, 2021     by Ainsley Lawrence     Comments

    Finances are about far more than one’s standard of living. They mean more than just having the luxury of going out and buying that designer handbag you’ve had your eye on or making sure you’re getting around town in a truly tricked-out ride. Financial issues are, fundamentally, a matter of social justice. And, increasingly, they’re linked to overall quality of life. Economic disparities are being linked to health disparities. This includes not only inequities in access … READ MORE
