Rita Wong supports the work of Fight C, the Peace Valley Solidarity Initiative, and Poets for the Peace to see justice in our times. A poet-scholar who has written several books of poetry, she has also coedited, with Dorothy Christian, an anthology entitled Downstream: Reimagining Water. She lives, works, and strives for water justice on the unceded territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations, where she has pledged to #ProtectTheInlet.

About allolulu

I'm still searching but I can say that I like to think of myself as someone who is open to progressive change. I have grave concerns about the state of the world, the speed by which capitalism is marginalizing the majority of the world's people and the increase in both domestic and weaponized violence perpetrated with the support of governments throughout the world. Community, art, people playing music and dancing together, writing a story, telling the truth are the cornerstones of our survival. That's what I think!
