The Best Things in Life Aren't Free

The best things in life aren't actually free. Relationships take time and effort. Justice and equity only come at the end of a long struggle. And through all that effort and struggle we've got to have a place to meet and sandwiches for the people doing the work. Sustaining the life of the organizations that live our values in the world ensures that the best things in life continue on, even after we do.
