I’m all for that! I’ve just heard too many people lately talking about how only individuals create change and since that was the sentence used it stood out for me.

Someone tried to tell me about how Mandela dismantled apartheid. Meanwhile it was a coordinated effort by several groups over several years. It perpetuates a harmful myth to say that without qualification, I think. Perhaps you could amend that part of the article to say what you said to me. Just a suggestion.
