Sarah Ahmed on Human Solidarity

Here’s a quote from distinguished professor and author Sarah Ahmed that goes to the heart of defining human solidarity.

“Solidarity does not assume that our struggles are the same struggles, or that our pain is the same pain, or that our hope is for the same future. Solidarity involves commitment, and work, as well as the recognition that even if we do not have the same feelings, or the same lives, or the same bodies, we do live on common ground.”
