In an era of compounding crises, the need to come together to build strong coalitions and communities asks each of us to radically reimagine what belonging—to one another and to our Earth—means. In a culture of disposability, where so much is seen as waste, increasingly others in our movements, communities, and even families, we invite you to pause and consider: How do we handle each other? How do we come together in a changing world?
Part of our Questions for a Resilient Future series, this new Question, “How do we come together in a changing world?” is curated by Editorial Fellows Kailea Frederick and Kate Weiner of Loam.
Below you’ll find the first two pieces in this new series, including an essay by Serena Bian and a conversation between Lucía Oliva Hennelly, Kailea Frederick, and Kate Weiner.
In the coming weeks, we’ll share pieces from new contributors Jeanine Canty, Kyle Mays, Lauren Hage, and Sam Edmondson as they offer their perspectives on this question.
