Corporations have a strong hold on the buzz word "increasing capacity" when referring to the efficiency of their workers.

Sara Green is the Youth and Young Adults of Color Ministry Associate in the Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministry at the UUA. She is a southern, cis/queer/poly, Black femme minister living in Lawrenceburg, TN. She imagines beloved community as communities that have the ability to eat good food together, experience pleasure in our bodies and regularly put their hands in soil—all the while free from fear and violence by way of all of the cultural and legal changes that must happen in order for this world to exist. She understands herself as part of a legacy of cultural workers, healers, maroons and creoles, southern queer freedom fighters and artists trying to shape god.
