First, Ariel Wetzel wrote a great article about opposing the new youth jail in the Stranger, in response to a dismissive post by Dominic Holden about our organizing work. Thanks for putting the facts out there, Ariel, and to all the other organizers who helped Ariel with the article.
Second, yesterday’s Festival of Resistance was great! People came through all day, from noon until evening. Thanks to the wonderful people who put on workshops, brought food, led art making, provided childcare, and set up the film screening! Special thanks to Movitas for leading us on a march around the jail. It was great to hear the youth inside knocking on the walls to let us know they heard our noise and support!
