- Frederick Douglass

We want our communities to continuously reimagine the movement, reimagine direct action, and importantly #ReimagineLove!

This scholarship is a product of our own reimagining process!

The ACT Scholarship is a people sourced project. We urge you to support by donating!  

Every dollar given towards creative risks and new tactics brings us closer to a movement that reimagines direct action in this time of political chaos. And every act of solidarity with Ruckus brings us closer to Phase Two of the ACT Scholarship, a deep movement assessment project!
