As activists, we often feel too fatigued to continue. We become easily depressed and overwhelmed, even hopeless, after fighting so much and so hard and still feeling the weight of gravity upon ourselves. Countless times throughout my years of activism alongside Jerin, she has personally lifted me up. She has motivated me. She has encouraged me to get out of bed and keep believing in myself and the movement. Jerin embodies the strength and courage of intersectional social justice for all--and she does it through powerful compassion.
