“I think solidarity to me is supporting groups and people that face issues that don’t necessarily affect you. Basically standing up for others without wanting anything in return.

I think people should support other’s causes the way that you would support your own cause. For instance, if you go to protests for an issue that affects you, you should also go to protests for other issues. Don’t be a slacker! There are tons of groups like Latinos Unidos para Black Lives Matter that make an effort for a movement that doesn’t affect them personally.” –Laniah Lewis, University of California, Santa Cruz
