Bayard Rustinâ€™s call for civil disobedience and direct action tells us that â€œthe only weapon we have is our bodies and we have to tuck them in places so wheels donâ€™t turn.â€ Even if it thatâ€™s not your jam, everyone has a role in creating a society where we divest from things that punish and invest in real community-based measures that keep us safe. It will take community organizers, cultural workers, farmers, caretakers and builders. Now is the time to go big; we have everything to gain.
– Charlene Carruthers, 31, the national director of Black Youth Project in The New York Times: â€˜Resistâ€™ Is a Battle Cry, but What Does It Mean?, 2/14/17.
