In the midst the marches and rallies, my concern is that we are settling for flash mob activism as a tool for social change. Beyond that, if most of us were honest, we don't know people [at least not intimately] that are being affected by
- DACA and the immigration reform
- The cradle to prison pipeline
- Generational poverty
- Unjust police tactics
This book [and the times we have together around it along with opportunities that come with participating] is a way for us to move from knowing about the injustices in our city as issues towards seeing and knowing and then even moving towards advocating for the people affected by these issues.
