understanding people in their social worlds

Summer 2018

Volume: 17 | Number: 3

From Black Lives Matter to #MeToo and the March for Our Lives, Americans are protesting police killings, pressuring lawmakers to address gun control, holding abusers accountable for rape, assault, and sexual harassment, demanding an end to the separation of immigrant parents and children, and asserting their rights to bodily autonomy and equal pay for equal work. Yet these marches and mobilizations are not the whole of resistance. Many are quick to think of daily, incremental actions as nothing more than “slacktivism”, but challenging policing, education policy, abortion restrictions, and pay inequities has to start somewhere. This issue explores what we mean when we say, “Resist.”
