At my university I teach in two subject areas that relate to global health, as well as social and environmental justice. However I fly, and often, and it has become a tremendous emotional and cognitive burden, as I know that it diminishes my voice and work when I am not walking the talk in this regard.
I am vegan and I did not have children in order to protect Earth, other animals and humans, but flying is something I have struggled to reduce. Thank you for creating this group so we can support each other.
