In the era of Trump, rising hate crimes and unparalleled environmental destruction, our communities need a movement for social justice like never before. In response to the rising tide of violence and injustice, people are joining protests and marches in numbers that we have not seen in decades.
Yet, protests and marches alone will not bring us the changes that we seek. While the need for direct action is clear, organizing a successful march or a direct action should never be a goal in and of itself. Direct actions are tools that we use as part of a larger organizing campaign that gets us to a larger goal.
