Visionary Politics: Another World is Possible
A panel discussion with Rachel Herzing from Critical Resistance and Creative Interventions, Michelle Mascarenhas-Swan from Movement Generation Justice & Ecology Project, Sara Kershnar from the International Jewish Anti-Zionist Network, Chela Delgado from INCITE: Women of Color Against Violence. The panelists discuss visionary politics for our movements based in the work of their organizations.
Visionary politics are political frames that invite us to imagine and create a world organized and operated by values of justice, cooperation, and liberation. This panel focuses on ways that social justice organizations balance addressing the urgency of organizing against oppressive forces and their immediate impacts on people’s lives with building sustainable alternative institutions and practices in line with their alternative visions for the world. Panelists discuss ways that their organizations balance fighting for concrete wins and advances in the world with transforming the process and culture of how that organizing happens.
