26 Ways to Be in the Struggle — Beyond the Streets
This list is designed to celebrate all the ways that our communities can engage in liberation. For a range of reasons, there are and always have been folks who cannot attend rallies and protests but who continue to contribute to ending police and state violence against black people.
People seek justice and support liberation in an array of ways, yet their bodies, their spirits, and their lives may not allow them to be in the streets. We believe that we will win. And we need the presence of everyone in the movement to do so. We affirm that all contributions are political, militant, and valued.
By and for those in our communities who can’t be in the streets, the list below offers concrete ways that we are in the movement, and that we are supporting liberation every day. We see you. We are you. See you in the struggle.
