About Kieran Wilson

How this came to be !

When I look at my life and work, there has always been a pattern playing out behind the scenes. It took me a long time to realize that the cyclical nature of my motivation -- and in turn, my happiness -- was based on if what I was doing positively contributed to anyone's life. Friends and family had always alluded to that, but they often did so by asking, "have you ever thought about being a politician?" to which I always responded with a long-winded "no". It wasn't until my uncle asked, "have you ever thought about being an activist?" that I understood what everyone else was seeing.

Over the course of the past ~70 days, not only have I thought about dedicating my life and work to activism, but I've also worked harder and harder at being confident in the belief that I am worthy of that title and its associated responsibilities. A friend suggested I make a Patreon to fund my efforts, and I was flattered, but unsure. But my lack of confidence in my work has always been a strong motivator rooted in the belief I can do better. And at this point, if I want to better, I need to find the financial means to fully immerse myself in this, and so here we are.

What I intend to do !

I want to be a force for change. In the words of Arundhati Roy, I want to show people that "another world is possible", and in the words of Toni Cade Bambara, I want to "make the revolution irresistable". I want to occupy the space between radical idealism and unambitious realism to drive the world toward a better future.

I intend to place my focus on issues such as youth political education and empowerment, facilitating the reallocation of police funding via initiating alternative solutions, increasing the accessibility of mental health resources, creating green initiatives within our city and parks, and pushing our city the acknowledge and secure housing rights and working class rights.

How I intend to do that !

The part where you come in !

The funds from this Patreon will not only support me, but also potentially replace the need to raise funds for some of my future projects. In return, supporters will have increased access to information about future plans, what I am currently working on, and what I accomplish. I intend to use my skills as a writer, photographer, and videographer to help meet these objectives. Additionally, supporters will have increased access to me. I would love to build a solid community to share ideas, discuss perspectives, and encourage one another to keep up the fight.

Thank you for taking the time to read this. I hope you will join this community and help me fight to abolish the faults of this system. Together, we will build a future we can be proud to leave behind.
