With chrisbykate.com as my platform, I aspire to create a positive impact on our collective future by sharing my personal truth, actively engaging in politics, advocating for social justice, and encouraging respectful interaction amongst individuals with differing views.
While I come into the conversation from a left-leaning, progressive perspective, I understand that other perspectives usually come from values-based, good faith differences in the way that one views the world around them. I strive to keep an open mind and invite readers to offer critiques or share an alternative way of looking at an issue.
When possible, I cite sources for data, and when not possible, I will say so.
I have only two rules for anyone who wants to engage in the conversation with me:
- Come in good faith. Respect for others and an open mind are required.
- Do not spread false information. If you know that it is not true, do not say it. I will call out incorrect information when I identify it – whether offered in good faith or bad.
