"Since the institution of the United States as we know it, organized resistance has been at the center of every major political and social change this country has seen. The Boston Tea Party, was the INFAMOUS deliberate action that sparked the American Revolution. The women’s suffrage movement of the early 20th century, the civil rights movement of the …entire existence of this country, let’s be real, and the gay rights movement have all seen political and social victories in some way due to the work of organizers and the visibility that protests give to the issue at hand.
Organizers, demonstrators and participants continue to pour their blood, sweat, tears and bail money into fighting for a cause. And in Chicago, one of those organizers is Tess Raser, a member of Assata’s Daughters and leader in the activist community."
