A case for dignity

Posted by & filed under .

Historically, successful social movements have depended on compassionate community services to build roots and maintain legitimacy. Like Ghandi’s work in the slums of South Africa, or the Black Panther’s breakfast programs, diverse groups have used these efforts not to distract from the message or drain resources, but rather to actualize the message and expand resources.  The history of our movement so far has proved that we can respond to negative criticism through positive action; we now have an opportunity to respond to forces which seek to destabilize us- not by argument, denial, or complaint, but by taking direct actions to shift the narrative to one that truly embodies the principles and dignity of this movement.
