Favorite quote or scripture related to justice:

“It is our duty to fight for our freedom.

It is our duty to win.

We must love each other and support each other. 

We have nothing to lose but our chains.”

-Assata Shakur

What does justice mean to you?

Justice, to me, is placing love at the center of everything we do. It is recognizing that everything and everyone constitutes an equally vital part of a whole, and thus handling humans, animals, the environment, and all things that connect us with care and compassion.
