Feeling down after a tumultuous week that bled into the weekend? US TOO. If only all our problems would self-destruct just like Banksy’s latest stunt. At least now there is no better time to get educated, connect with your community, and rally together. Below are some reads, events, and new horizons toward a brighter, more inclusive, and fair future. Because we can’t stay stagnant, not in times like these. Onwards.
