  • This presentation examines the role of clothing in a contemporary radical political milieu: anarchism. Using both survey and interview techniques I am investigating the relationship between anarchists and their clothing; how what one wears can reinforce, spread, and/or complicate one's political identity. I currently have 40 'informants' for the study. I am deploying the work of Daniel Miller, Susanne Küchler, Amy De la Haye, and Elizabeth Wilson in this study.

  • This presentation will do a deep dive into critiques of the non-profit industrial complex and describe how those critiques have helped to form the basis for a new wave of anarchism-inspired, radically-decentered organizational structures for community-based activist groups. The presentation will proceed in three parts: 1.) The non-profit industrial complex: why non-profits always fail as instruments for meaningful social change. 2.) Starting from shared anti-authoritarian values, what could radical, community-based structures look like?

  • While battles around indigenous land rights have a long history of overlap with the environmental justice (EJ) movement, there is a developing body of research and activism placing prisoners’ rights in the EJ context as well, since prison populations in every state of the U.S. are populated disproportionately by people of color.

  • Recent events have shown that the effects of climate change are not distant fears, but current realities. However, instead of changing course, those in power are stepping up efforts to exacerbate the climate chaos. Extreme weather is increasing in frequency and intensity, and the rich and powerful aim to take advantage of these events in order to institute economic reforms that further reinforce their privileged status. But they aren’t the only ones responding to disasters.

  • If a caring heart, a commitment to the struggle, and a practice of hard work alone could change the world, a revolution would have already happened. But pedagogy is at the heart of liberation. We have a vision for the world we want, a world where all life thrives, but we’re not there yet. We don’t known exactly how to overcome the oppression we face, and how to create a world where we all thrive. We are on a learning journey. Activism and education need each other to create change.

As the administration gears up for cutting social services and funding for sanctuary cities, we need to build infrastructure to support each other.
