The United States is in a state of political emergency, and for too long, popular narratives have sold the ballot box as the solution to every injustice. But although voting is a vital tool for political engagement, it’s not the only way to fight for social justice.

As part of Prism’s ongoing politics and democracy coverage, we’re bringing together community activists, organizers, and movement leaders to talk about the many ways their communities are politically engaged beyond the ballot. We’ll discuss issues like decolonization and reparations, queer liberation, and strategies for amplification, grassroots movement-building, and coalition-building. Ultimately, this conversation will help deepen connections and engage the Prism community with the everyday work of liberation in an active, practical way.
