The radical community being built and defended at the Weelaunee forest occupation is opening up new worlds. #StopCopCity is a lesson in solidarity as risk and responsibility.
Kai (they/them) is a Trans* scholar-activist whose primary focus is experimenting with different modes of world building through radical organizing. Part of this includes their work as a doctoral student at Northwestern, where they study Black and Native feminist theories across Abaya Yala and Turtle Island with a focus on ecological solidarities in Caribbean literature. Living on stolen Anishinaabe land, they also work across Chicago and greater Turtle island to fight for #LandBack and abolition. As a poet, they write largely around love, ecology, and freedom, with the occasional piece about dilapidating furniture.
