Arc-ivist Statement

Imagine you are about to meet someone new during a pandemic year.  You do not know their politics, nor their attitudes toward social justice, nor what they think  about climate change. You have no idea what their approach is to the pandemic or the vaccines, nor do you know if they are interested in science or history. Imagine gaining insights into what they think is most important about being human; learning about their dreams and hopes for the future; finding out what catches their attention in the morning and what they worry about each night before they drift off to sleep.
