If we’re not involved in making our decisions, someone else who is making money off of us is going to make decisions for us

There are different ways to advocate. Grow your own. Simple foods  like beans. Go to city hall, committee meetings, neighborhoods to push for farmer markets, stores. Many ways to take back your power. If we’re not involved in making our decisions, someone else who is making money off of us is going to make decisions for us.

Recently I went to city hall to advocate for lights on street. Poor lighting is creating a lot of chaos. A simple function of light means so much to different people. How light means time for children to come. Drivers cannot see pedestrians. A light provides sight, seeing. Light means much functionally, safety.
