Solidarity: A New Vision of Safety

Solidarity: A New Vision of Safety

Dear WTSA Family,

Please listen to the March 2018 episode of Solidarity Is This, which features a conversation with Dante Barry, executive director of the​ ​Million Hoodies Movement for Justice​, about gun violence and mass criminalization. He poses an important question: How do we open up a new vision about what safety could look like?

Be sure to check out the accompanying syllabus for the newest episode.

We Too Sing America News (Fall 2016)

It’s hard to believe that we are in September already! I’m writing with a quick update on We Too Sing America, and with an invitation to join a new effort to explore principles and practices of multiracial solidarity.

*I’m so excited to share that We Too Sing America has been selected for a 2016 American Book Award from the Before Columbus Foundation. It’s such an honor to be among this group of authors: check out the entire list here.

*I’m hoping to meet many of you at We Too Sing America events and speaking engagements during the fall. Check out the calendar of events here. And if you’d like me to come and speak or do a workshop at your conference, on your campus, or in a community space, please contact me at

*For the past month, I’ve been coordinating a new campaign called #SolidarityIs, which is an effort by national racial justice organizations to explore how we practice transformative solidarity. Check out our website at and join us on Twitter (@solidarity_is). Our website contains resources, sample language for solidarity statements, and best practices of solidarity in action.

*Be on the lookout for author Marina Budhos’ new young adult novel, Watched, which will be released this fall. It’s a must read for anyone who wants to know more about the impact of issues such as surveillance on the lives of South Asian, Muslim and Arab youth.
