Social justice is important to me. I've participated in non-hierarchical organizing in lots of [effective and not so effective!] ways throughout the years. Now, though, I spend most of my time in the bureaucratic world of public education because it's where I saw the most opportunity to put my passion for neurodiversity to good use.
I'd be amped to find someone to go to Springfield No One Leaves actions/events with me.
Special ed teachers often seem to be cat ladies or lesbians or both. And not the cool kind of cat lady who wears off the shoulder sweatshirts that ironically tout the phrase, "My cats are my boyfriend." I would happily wear the sweatshirt, but it wouldn't be ironic. And now you know all there is to know.
