[This reminds me of the little non-profit in Baltimore that I’m clearly becoming obsessed with, aka Thread. What happens when we open our doors to “others”? When we are integrated, our lives entwined, it seems like it is easier to care for other humans and build humane policies. However, this article documents a Canadian program that, like most things to our north, is very white. From snow to savior-complex, white is the new black. Though the end of the article ponders what the white Canadians might gain or need from these relationships, what a truly equitable network might offer, it is a long road to get there.]
