I think it's really important for content creators to figure out how to do cross-sector collaboration. I've felt much more empowered by my content by actually partnering with organizations on the ground that I feel aligned with, that I know are doing on-the-ground, offline work. I basically like viewing myself as a tool and a servant in some ways to be able to amplify and uplift amazing work that's happening off the internet, and to try to connect people together.
