Activist Chris Crass offers guidance for self-care in this emotionally difficult time of COVID-19.
Racism doesn’t want us to know these histories.
We can do this, and we must bring as many white boys and white men with us, out of the culture of emotional suffocation that leads to a hundred forms of violence.
How can we challenge the ways that systems of oppression show up during the holidays with family and longtime friends, while also inviting people into liberation values and culture?
This is not a declaration of “see, it’s all good.”
Chris Crass thinks it’s time for men in the millions to take courageous action in our society to further feminist revolution.
How can we generate a deep passion and hunger for racial justice?
These are the rebels we need to survive the next three years and some change. (It’s never too early to start counting down.)
Let us bring out the best of who we are and become feminist men who can help heal and transform this world.
Chris Crass implores white anti-racism activists around the country to step away from their fear and start making change.
Prioritize self-care when you are fighting these often bleak battles…so you can go on to make your difference in the world.
An excerpt from the critically acclaimed book Towards Collective Liberation: Anti-Racist Organizing, Feminist Praxis, and Movement Building Strategy
Charlottesville makes this all too clear.
Our primary task is to awaken as many white people as we can to the nightmare of white supremacist capitalism
Chris Crass asks white people to be enraged by verdicts that echo the thousands of anti-Black racist verdicts before it.
Because even with anguish and pain in our hearts, we also have love and rage, and we will fight for multiracial democracy, for the future of our planet, for the future of our children.
