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"

Next time... to be continued

Next time you decide to go out for a meal, walk around the corner and invite the woman sitting on the curb asking for 50 cents to join you.

Next time you decide to buy yourself a pair of shoes, check out the feet of women walking down the sidewalk and invite the shoeless woman to join you.

Next time you pay your mortgage, your rent, walk a couple of blocks over the railroad tracks and knock on the door of a woman whose home is fallen into disrepair and hand her your mortgage, your rent in cash.

Next time you shop for a new coat or socks, buy two and walk to the park and share with the woman sleeping under the bench.
