What Love Looks Like in Public
This essay is a thought-piece that attempts to capture the tenor of the pandemic and the necessity to provide mutual aid in times of crisis. It also attests to the fact that mutual aid extends beyond capital, as it also encompasses mutual care in community. As we articulate our mirrored experiences during the pandemic, we trace a common trajectory in the simple thought that everyone deserves to be housed and fed, and that they deserve these two basic needs to be met with their self-determination in mind. This is what sanctuary means to us both.
