Visions for Solidarity with Yemen

As I write this message to you, I am also responding to voicemail messages describing heavy aerial bombardments near my family’s home in Sana’a, Yemen. Alongside devastating blockades, this is the daily reality for 27 million Yemenis forced to live through the horrors of a U.S.-backed, Saudi-led war. At the same time, these messages remind me of the inspiring possibilities of what solidarity looks like when we put their voices at the forefront.

A Message from Dennise

As a queer, formerly undocumented woman of color and Mexican immigrant, last year’s election shook me to my core. The millions of Americans who voted for Trump’s obscenely xenophobic platform left me feeling helpless. As I finished out my time in school, grappling to reclaim my power and that of my community, I pledged to work towards resourcing movements that insist on everyone’s right to live with real safety in the place they call home.

So You Wanna Be A Cop?

Cops have been us telling little blue lies...
Actually these lies are not so little, and instead obscure the realities of policing in the U.S. That's why we are launching a new resource to help fight powerful police department rebrand campaigns, and get the truth to young people being recruited to the police force.

Sanaa Review: Ray of Light from Yemen

While Trump escalates long-standing US complicity in the catastrophic war on Yemen through its arming of Saudi Arabia and more, we are deeply inspired by the launch of مجلة صنعاء "Sanaa Review": an e-zine by Yemenis that cuts through silence and distortion, bringing us the brilliance of independent Yemeni journalism, art and thought now. This media work is all the more timely since according to Reporters Without Borders, Yemen has become the second most dangerous place for journalists on earth, due mostly to repression by "rebels" . Below Sanaa Review's editor-in-chief Afrah Nasser describes why this independent project is so needed, and gives us a glimpse of the content they put out in the Fall of 2017.
