On Solidarity: A Boston Review Launch Event
On Solidarity clarifies a key idea in struggles for a more just world. What does solidarity mean, and how can diverse movements build enough of it to change society?
Organizer and political theorist Mie Inouye will be joined by contributors Charisse Burden-Stelly and Nathan R. DuFord for a forum on obstacles to collective action today. Rejecting the language of “allyship” and the politics of deference, On Solidarity makes the case for maintaining solidarity through conflict in durable institutions over time, none of which is possible without the hard work of good organizing.
