IN COMMUNITY: ESPERANZA PALLANA on ORGANIZING

I recorded this conversation with Esperanza Pallana, an esteemed organizer in Oakland who we were fortunate enough to feature in Loam: A Woman's Work, in the immediate aftermath of the election. We had a few technical difficulties in uploading the file but revisiting our interview this week—when the world was rocked by marches, acts of resistance, and stories of revolution—was a true gift. Esperanza talks about what it means to be in community during these dark times as well as suggests that in many ways, this election is a sign of our success. We are threatening the dominant powers of oppression and so we must keep doing what we're doing and harder. Listen in for guidance from Esperanza on creativity, celebration, and community.
