Today, Americans are faced with the crippling social and economic fallout of a global pandemic which only accentuates the existing disparities in our communities. Similar to Depression Era FDR, we have arrived at a moment of crisis and possibility. We are not calling for a Fireside Chat re-do, but rather an acknowledgement that many of the national narratives of liberation have erased the voices of women and people of color. It is time for an update. We are expanding the vernacular and aesthetics of power with the bodies and voices of brilliant thinkers of artists, writers, performers and musicians—calling on them to assume authority over our collective future.
