    Reading these essays reflections was a deeply moving experience for me as a feminist, a Latina, and a non disabled person I felt like I was having a long, late night conversation with each author about topics that are both abstract and very personal at the same time hope, despair, resistance, the limits and the potential of each of us as individuals and in community.The book is publish

    Huge range in quality Some of the essays were great though they were all too short imo and quite a few were really not great at all.

    These essays have a wide range in quality, and few of them offer concrete plans or suggestions for organizing and self care Overall, worth reading for the really excellent essays.

    Resistance and Hope is a series of essays collected from the disability community, written to spur action, collective healing, and resistance Each essay is short and sweet not really calling for any specific actions but pushing forth broader ideas on what modern activism taken from learnings in the Disability Justice framework can look like What I really appreciated about this book was that it truly

    Loved most of itI really liked this book, with one exception content notes are for sensitive topics that may impact trauma survivors or people with phobias In a disabled writer anthology it baffles and upsets me that this was treated so badly Activist praxis isn t a content note
