After a delay due to the pandemic, we’re excited to finally be able to share Crossroads Fund’s episode of the Queering Left podcast, featuring ourselves alongside the revolutionary Eisha Love. In honor of the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall rebellion, we discussed prison abolition, Black trans liberation, sex work, and much more. Check it out!
After our two workshops with Project NIA’s Abolitionist Youth Organizing Institute last month, illustrator Laura Chow Reeve generated these incredible graphics based on the discussions we had collectively, as part of her Radical Roadmaps series. We love them so much we posted them here on our website, and added them to much of our social media.
We’re closing out the summer with a virtual workshop for Race Forward, a bilingual session for Cicero Community Collaborative, and are returning for the 6th summer in a row to facilitate for Chicago Desi Youth Rising’s summer retreat. We’ll also be a guest lecturing for the closing session of the Liberation Collective, a program of Phillips Academy Andover. Students in this series have been exploring Charlene Carruthers’ five core questions for organizing. We’ll be joining them to discuss the final question: Are we ready to win? We can think of no more exciting nor opportune moment to make space for the many responses to this prompt.
We have some exciting developments brewing for the fall (as well as events that have been postponed from the spring due to COVID-19). Stay tuned!
