Birthing in Revolutionary Love
By Brenda Norrell
SAN RAFAEL, Calif. -- Valarie Kaur began her talk on Revolutionary Love with thanks to the Miwok people and ancestors.
"What if this not the darkness of the tomb, but the darkness of the womb?"
Speaking to those gathered at the Bioneers Conference, Valarie said the murder of her Sikh friend, an uncle, on the streets of Mesa, Arizona, made her an activist.
"Hate crimes have skyrocketed."
