@AngiePaddlesandMore I think @nathanu is for keeping the conversations area a more friendly social network that builds us all up rather than another place where its all about that necessary evil of politics, which I am all for, but that doesn't mean we keep politics out as they are unfortunately a part of life (REI isn't apolitical either IMO, but my views generally align with what they are working towards).  I don't like the political bubbles we can get stuck in on other platforms and I do think we can all have reasonable discussions here more than elsewhere.  I don't think he is diminishing the concerns you have or the validity of your political activism.  I think your project sounds like a good thing and wish you luck on your endeavor.😀
