WE ARE IN SERVICE OF THE COMMUNITY ✽
✽ We’re also all employed by a for-profit commercial entity which exists inside of a larger industry built on the principles of regulated market capitalism and are therefore beholden to both the macro-scale market concerns and micro-scale personal concerns (i.e. continued gainful employement) therein.
