Though patience may be a virtue, those of us committed to social justice rarely have much to say. We need action to challenge racism, patriarchy, and climate change— just to name a few. But in our cover story, Tobias Winright explores the value of patience— a patience that is "not a naïve assumption that everything will simply turn out for the best," but rather a radical power to move us beyond quick fixes to deep and meaningful change. We can’t wait, but we must also learn to do so.
