Becoming Organizers

It was such an honor to speak alongside the always-insightful Sharmeen Khan in this inaugural episode of the Spadework podcast with hosts Antje Dieterich and Daniel Gutiérrez! Together, we went deep into challenges facing radical organizers, including how to sustain collective memory, work through conflict, foster accountability, and rebuild cultures of solidarity. Spadework, as the description lays out, “is an educational project of the Werkstatt für Bewegungsbildung — a movement school located in Berlin, Germany, dedicated to providing ordinary people with the tools and space necessary to build the organizations and movements we need and long for.”

Remaking Radicalism

I’m so excited about the new Remaking Radicalism collection edited by Dan Berger and Emily Hobson and published by University of Georgia Press! This incredible resource gathers more than 100 essential documents from U.S.-based radical movements active between 1973-2001. And alongside these documents, a whole bunch of super-smart activists contributed “snapshots” – short pieces tracing movement histories during this period. I feel honored to have a piece included on the history of the global justice movement, one part of what Robin Kelley aptly calls “the long 1990s.”
