I've been writing daily snippets explaining the social justice issues of our world as they come up, but I haven't had the time and energy to write the longer essays many of these topics deserve—and I've been wanting to work on the Dictionary of Social Justice for over a year, as well.

I could chase down the paying venues to support my longer work, and we could all keep waiting for me to finally dedicate the time to writing all those definitions. I will keep doing some of that. Meanwhile, current technology allows us—you and I—to interact in a way that's both time-honored and very modern. Here, we skip past the bottleneck of Traditional Media. 

Patreon makes it possible for each of you to contribute something to me directly, and thereby do your part to bring about a little more social justice in your world. As a Patron, you'll get first look at my essays in progress, and get a say in which topics I write on first. As a specific Patron of the DoSJ, your requests for definitions go to the top of the queue, and you get to be a part of the conversation that will influence the final form of the work.

I'd love to be able to work full-time on this. Let's see how close we can get.
