What will we do after the protest? Build the movement together

Presented by Charlie Brown

We’re in a movement moment, that much is clear. But can anyone tell me what the movement is about? We’ve got to have a clear answer to make impact. Let’s be real and let’s get organized. Protesting and RT’ing doesn’t change complex, long-entrenched systems. Instead of amplifying our differences, and all the bad behavior in the world, let’s capitalize on what we have in common and design our way forward. Let’s work through the three must-haves in all movements, and learn the unique role each of us is most needed to play.
