Being nurturant often entails giving up privileges. It means sacrificing freedom to care for others. It means prizing their well-being above personal gain.

Our instance is supported by sliding scale contributions of $1-10/mo made via Open Collective. You must have an active Open Collective account to apply for membership; you may set one up here
