Hey everyone!  Welcome back to another mini episode of Advocate Activism!  I’m Amira. When we started this podcast last year, I realized how therapeutic it was for us to have a space where we can share our hopes & struggles as activists and students of Anti-racism, & doing it in a way that promotes Love & the opportunity for growth, WITHOUT shame. 

With over a year in, I’ve come to see a consistent pattern of drama and JUDGMENT within the Activism community & I believe with that comes opportunity to gain knowledge and understanding. 

Sometimes, I get so angry about the judgment of others, I have to intentionally step back and re-examine where my mind and heart are at. 

As an Anti-Racist student, there are things you don’t know until you know. When I made the choice earlier this year to take a stance on abolishing the police, I was scared because I didn’t want people to think I HATE them because they’re cops. The reality is, for me, “no good cop in a racist system”.  It’s just my reality now. 

Learning how to navigate what I feel is right and doing it in a way that doesn’t make others feel like shit is challenging & I continue to work on my approach and moreover, on my mind and heart. 

Finding faith leaders that believe in the same things (for the most part) as myself, where I get to practice the POWER OF PAUSE… THE POWER OF MINDFULNESS… THE POWER OF COMMUNITY & LOVE Is a whole new phase of my activism…

Even in that, the judgment from activists among the community about the ways in which we do this work is WILD! I hope if nothing else, during this mini episode you gain a better understanding of my headspace during these moments. 

I want to see community take more time finding ways to build each other up, WHILE sharing concerns, fears, mistakes so we can all keep growing together ❤ 

Love y’all!  Enjoy “Why the FUCK are activists so JUDGMENTAL”?
