Creative Maladjustment

Making conscious decisions to move toward equity and social justice can place us in positions where we find ourselves moving against the current, taking roads less traveled.

As difficult and isolating as the act of moving upstream can feel at times, it’s important to realize that you aren’t alone, and the work has purpose and meaning.

Be encouraged by these words from Dr. King on Creative Maladjustment.

Because there are some things that we should never get used to, no matter how hard we are pressured to do so.

I’m a Social Justice Educator and Aspiring Humanitarian who is interested in conflict resolution, improving intergroup relations, and building more equitable and inclusive communities.

“Notes from an Aspiring Humanitarian” is my blog, where I write about issues of diversity, inclusion, equity, and social justice. By exploring social identities through written word, film & video, and other forms of media, I hope to continue to expand and enrich conversations about social issues that face our society, and to find ways to take social action while encouraging others to do so as well in their own ways.
