Poetry has the power to reach deeply into your soul and connect you with words that weave and shape a profound experience. Denise and I bonded over poetry, eager to share in the words of Maya Angelou and Rupi Kaur. These female-identified voices speak words that do the brilliant work of connection.
Denise works educating members of the labour movement. Her lived experiences and advocacy are uncompromisingly inclusive. I learn from her and take that knowledge forward with me. Her perspective helps me know how things were, how we have made things better, and how we can yet change the world for the better.
