Work 4 Peace,Hold All Life Sacred,Eliminate Violence! For now, I’ve returned from my Joiyssey to participate in the "revolution":I’ve been at many Occupy sites across the country:1st in D.C. Freedom Plaza I faced & challenged racism/white supremacy, sexism/patriarchy, classism, heterosexism & eventually was kicked off the island; then I offered workshops as I drove to CA:“Anti-Racism Geared for White Occupiers”; “NO DRONES” "Successes and Pitfalls of OWS"

From Occupy to Occupy: Atlanta to Oakland

I am going to attempt to connect with lots of (un)Occupies from Atlanta to Oakland. I want to check out what is happening, cull the good ideas and successful actions, spread the anti-racist word, connect with womonists/feminists, and see if people are interested in gathering in D.C. beginning March 8th.

If you are participating in any of these (un)Occupies and want to arrange for a Racism Awareness Workshop geared for white occupiers and/or an Everything You've Never Wanted to Know about Drones Workshop, just let me know. Email or call 404-853-9990
