Making Space for Faith in Liberalism

We sat in silence with our eyes closed for half an hour, contemplating the people who motivate and inspire us. Those in attendance could share their thoughts periodically, but there was no pressure to speak. It was 8 p.m. on a Tuesday night, and I was at a Quaker meeting in the John Main Center….

Collaboration and Coordination Drive Change

On Friday, Nov. 18, I took a walk. Starting in Red Square, I strolled down O, made a right on Wisconsin, left on M, slight right on Pennsylvania, and then slight left on L. All the way I chanted slogans like “Climate change affects us all!”, “Who’s planet? Our planet!”, and “This is what democracy…

Do Not Take Your Democracy for Granted

I come from a highly politicized country where abstaining from voting is considered shameful. In Turkey, the rule of “no politics at the dinner table” would be met with ridicule.

Finding Empowerment Outside of the Boys’ Club

I cursed for the first time in second grade. I was the only girl playing soccer at recess—as usual—when I said “crap.” I don’t remember in what context I said it—it could have been because I missed a shot, or I lost the ball—it doesn’t really matter. What matters is that I cursed (knowing very…

Encourage Camaraderie in Election’s Wake

Is it just me, or is everyone wearing black? I asked my roommate this question as we began the actual walk of shame to our first class the morning after the election. We didn’t speak when we were getting ready. I put on black skinny jeans, black rain boots, and my favorite red sweater. It…
