Dear Western MA community,
The Western MA ISO is defunct as of ~3 months ago. A few of us ex-members, including myself, have continued to meet off and on these past months to do what we personally feel needs to be done before we go our separate ways or try to start anything new. A key task we set for ourselves is to write a public apology letter to all the folks with whom we have interacted over the years, as we know or suspect that we caused harm to many of you in our time as ISO members.
We are including both the main version of the apology letter and the "long version" (which spends much more time analyzing, in particular, our bad anti-oppression politics and practice) which may be of interest to activists. I will link in the comments both the google docs and the audio files (which I recorded for both versions to try to improve accessibility).
