On Pivoting: Ideas on Organizing During a Trump Administration


Truth Out (one of the fake “fake” news sources) has the article On Pivoting: Ideas on Organizing During a Trump Administration.

I’m defining a “strategic pivot” as a change in organizing strategies or tactics to ensure a community’s survival or to increase the impact or reach of its political vision. In this moment we know that systems of oppression are historical and deeply embedded within US culture and institutions. White supremacy, misogyny, ableism, Islamophobia, homophobia, transphobia and xenophobia are not new. What is new is that we’re encountering an incoming administration that is more transparently oppressive and violent than many of us have seen in our lifetimes.
