"I could write a piece which lays out the many problems and challenges we see in our work at QSA, the desperately sad and wicked circumstances that people find themselves in, at the sharp end and on the breadline, but I worry that these are stories we’ve all heard so often, and it’s hard to know where they can take us, beyond sympathy and a sense of despair. So, instead, I would like to invite you to come on a different journey with me and instead to explore three non-problems; dignity, proximity and love."
Judith Moran, director of Quaker Social Action, reflects on how we can use "non-problems" as additional tools to approach anti-poverty and social justice work. How do we apply these across all the work we do at QSA?
