My practice stands as an advocate and active ally against discrimination in all its terrible and destructive forms. I condemn violence and hatred, and express my loving commitment in support of all people, especially those who suffer due to systemic injustice and state-sponsored or interpersonal violence.

My practice is committed to alleviating suffering and inequality.
