How can we avoid diluting the message while also trying to “spread the word”, or awareness on the active topic?

It seems to me that the workplace is a site for resistance and action right now. I’m thinking about the Amazon and frontline health care protests as well as my own situation as a university professor whose administration has already announced, without faculty input, that they are planning to reopen the campus in the fall. What do you think, Charles?

Sorry to say I have to jump off. Thanks so much, Charles and Beverly!
Nadine Bloch
01:10:41
yes art builds are wonderful — but depends on your goal! And I say this as the person who crafted that giant puppet that has come to be an icon from the Seattle protests… It seems now we need art and cultural work that actively disrupts as well— time is short, and the situation is critical on so many levels.. Puppets and pageants have been part of the USA history since the beginning, too

Got to go to another meeting, but I would like to offer the brilliant strategy of car rallies, which we are deeply engaged in no during the prison abolition movement, as people are experiencing a death sentence inside prisons. It is urgent and w ease taking leadership from formerly incarcerated folks (which includes amazing artist activists!) Thanks for conversation Charles!

Activating labor organizations (workers!) is another key strategy. I want to see us become even more assertive, even aggressive.
