Why Direct Action

No social justice movement in history has been successful without the strategic use of nonviolent direct action. There comes a moment in every struggle when the power of everyday people needs to be felt, and when the community can only attain victory by advancing their front line. That moment, if approached with creativity and vision, can be a transformative moment for the community and for the struggle itself. We see our purpose as increasing the capacity for vision, creativity and strategy in direct actions by impacted communities with the intention of changing history.
