I also advocate for an education that makes people independent of the system we currently live in. By teaching them how to grow their own food and by teaching them things like carpentry, sewing and cooking.
Also, as a Lesbian Transgender, I am a strong advocate of ACTUAL LGBT* Rights. The right to marry is important, of course, but so are fair treatment and equal rights of the Trans* community in prisons, when it comes to buying homes and seeking employment and when it comes to adoption (which is something that the entire community is facing discrimination on).
Lastly, I understand and accept my privilege as a middle - class Caucasian and I work everyday to use that privilege to better this world for everyone and not just myself.
