Values List

Patrisse Cullors

As one of the co-founders of Black Lives Matter, Patrisse has influenced how I think about my own needs and meeting them. Her 2019 article in Harvard Law Review gave grounding and tangibility to my abolitionist practice. I encourage everyone to read it and pick up her 2022 book, An Abolitionist's Handbook: 12 Steps to Changing Yourself and the World.
