Same as it ever was

Fri, 20 Jan 2017 19:29:05 +0000

16 years ago today I was wearing warm sturdy shoes I had bought the night before with a friend just for the occasion, and was being harassed in the streets of DC confused, scared, and angry with my fellow young-ish people in hoodies. Today I appreciated being able to watch these live videos from Black Lives Matter of the ...



What is the point of direct action?

Why do those annoying protesters keep messing everything up with their inconvenient disobedience? My friend Deanna Zandt made a great explainer. Feel free to share.



Putting our hearts and bodies where our mouths are

Wed, 18 Jan 2017 20:41:56 +0000

Blessing for the Women's March By Erika A. Hewitt (Unitarian Universalist minister) May you be safe. May you be free from all harm. As the road or skies carry you toward your fellow pilgrims, may you sense the presence of those who travel with you in spirit, whose hopes and hearts are tucked into your pockets, who name your journey’s purpose as sacred. May you encounter strangers-as-kindred, and may that recognition of kinship bring joy to your journey. Whether the faces in the crowd number in the dozens, hundreds, or thousands, may you not only recognize yourself, but may you also witness a dazzling tapestry of colors, languages, genders, ages, and bodies: proud testament to and humbling display of our human family.



Revenge: what can I call us but lighthouse

Thu, 05 Jan 2017 13:33:32 +0000

Since you mention it, I think I will start that race war. I could’ve swung either way? But now I’m definitely spending the next 4 years converting your daughters to lesbianism; I’m gonna eat all your guns. Swallow them lock stock and barrel and spit bullet casings onto the dinner table; I’ll give birth to an army of mixed-race babies. With fathers from every continent and genders to outnumber the stars, my legion of multiracial babies will be intersectional as fuck and your swastikas will not be enough to save you,



Marvel on social justice in comics in 1969: “We can say we tried.”

Tue, 03 Jan 2017 17:57:49 +0000

Jill Pantozzi reminds us that “Marvel Has Been Ignoring Fans Telling Them to Stop Being So Progressive Since Forever.” Fan letters are a big part of comics culture since they get printed in the next issue, and in 1969 Stan Lee got a letter (from a Burlington, NC reader) that sounds like it could have been written ...



Republicans hate democracy and fair play, part eleventy million

Wed, 14 Dec 2016 21:52:46 +0000

After closing the emergency #NCGA session for hurricane (and wildfire) relief funding, the Republicans opened a new session in which Democrats are not permitted to submit any bills, and are now proposing surprise legislation to limit the powers of the governor since the people of North Carolina rejected their incompetent leader. They plan to vote TONIGHT. Please spread the word so they know we see them, and follow these accounts for updates...

Grounded in love we will dare to be powerful. We will use our strength in the service of our vision. #LeadWithLove



Remember: The Powell Memo

Wed, 14 Dec 2016 13:44:55 +0000

Democracy is on life support in the U.S. This didn’t just happen overnight. One of the original daggers in its side is the 1971 Powell Memo, which outlined a comprehensive strategy for building institutions to promote free market worship and limit participatory democracy.






Take Action: There’s nothing OK about the idea of a Muslim registry

Tue, 06 Dec 2016 17:16:57 +0000

My colleague Khadija at MomsRising asks how we will explain this to our kids. How can I tell my son, who only has a dawning understanding of how our nation was founded on the principle of religious freedom, that our own government is preparing to single out people based on their faith or ethnicity and take away their rights? ...
