problems in transportation for people who are less unfortunate. Things aren’t always under the binary of right and wrong, however, “things are a lot more slippery and playful than that. Everything is ambiguous, and everything is always shifting and changing” (pg 83). If this is how I approach our work in Boston, maybe my guilt will not be so adamant, but more open my mind and help me be more willing to learn about these inequalities and what I can do on a personal level to help make this world a better place for all of us. Developing a fruitful relationship with our community partners that exhibits trust and exhibits expansive knowledge among our peers is something that I’m very excited for this spring break. Developing connections with our community partners will be a product of collective thinking and expressing our feelings about the situations that allow us to focus on the work that we do. I’m even more interested to meet people from Roxbury and the surrounding community

to see why they chose to work for ACE—for me it’s merely a fantastic opportunity while, as it seems to me, our community partners will have deeply rooted reasons as to why they are working for specific causes that are vital to their maintain their daily lives as citizens using the transportation system (and other projects that may be related to these causes). These associations that we develop with the community will not only tell us who we are, but what we can do for each other that will determine the connection (pg 47 from the Bahamas article). For me, developing this connection and what it will do for me is help me learn in a hands on setting that is vital for my understanding in organizing. Hopefully, our community partners will learn (if they haven’t already) that they have something very valuable to teach us about community organizing.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
