Jessica Xiao writes about love and social justice, because the personal is political and the political is personal. Writing, creating, and bearing witness is her primary form of activism. She is a contributing writer at Everyday Feminism, a grant writer for the Montreal-based international women’s economic development nonprofit Artistri Sud, and the former assistant editor and writer at The Humanist. She believes in empathic action and bringing our whole selves to every aspect of our lives for transformational social change. She also believes in expressions of #radicalvulnerability as a tool for healing and for nurturing emotional intelligence.
