What Liberation Means to Alana
Tell us why you do what you do.
I have always believed in the power and importance of social justice movements, and I started getting involved as a teenager at anti-war protests. I also find quiet joy in solving math problems, so I'm thrilled to find a path where my math skills can help the world at large.
What’s most important to you about being part of Solidaire?
I'm honored to be part of Solidaire's embodiment of a diverse, loving community.
What does liberation mean to you?
Liberation is the ability for all people to live as their authentic selves in peace, without fear or violence.
