Love can be a powerful force, a call to action that unifies us and empowers us in the most difficult of circumstances.
Sunny and Peter by Conor Sweetman
Sunny and Peter led parallel lives. One in Ireland. The other in the United States. They both suffered injustice and tragedy. Then they found each other, and their healing could finally begin.

For The Love of Blackfullas by Chelsea Watego
“It has always and only ever been love that binds us to each other and which fuels the fights we are forced to take up” says Chelsea Watego. This week we are talking about love and injustice, and it’s hard to talk about injustice without addressing the injustices in our own country, especially those faced by Aboriginal people in our own flawed legal system.
Our second story is an essay by Munanjahli and South Sea Islander academic and writer Chelsea Watego on the power of Black love.
CW: This story includes descriptions of racism and the names of people who have passed.
