Organizing Takes Place in the Interstices
By Alexander Reid Ross (November 10, 2016)
““For some of us there was no one particular place, and we grabbed whatever we could from wherever we found space, comfort, quiet, a smile, non-judgment.” – Audre Lorde
Remembering today that the great burden of organizing takes place in the interstices, away from the obtuse and brutal burlesque that passes for radicalism in America. Organizing needs, wants, and desires; meeting, grinding, and arguing, bringing something out of a labor of love. We will keep to the method of freedom, holding true to ourselves and our communities. We will continue the struggle, only more intelligently and dedicated than ever before. Sending my love to everyone profoundly affected by last night’s terrible news. It is a new day today. Don’t mourn, organize.
