Highlights from ALP
“Sometimes we are blessed with being able to choose the time, and the arena, and the manner of our revolution, but more usually we must do battle where we are standing.” --Audre Lorde, Sister Outsider: Essays and Speeches.
The Audre Lorde Project (ALP) is committed to bridging struggle across intersections and ending all forms of oppression, including that of the Prison Industrial Complex (PIC). We support sharing ourselves and our stories to connect our communities. As a progressive organization seeking radical social justice, we recognize the need to strategize, mobilize, and organize to move important and necessary work forward. We endorse this mass bailout because we understand the real impact of the PIC and that people deserve to be with loved ones and at a home while they wait for a trial.
We are re-opening the search process for the Executive Director position. During our search over last fall & winter we had the opportunity to meet and learn about really amazing folks out there doing great work. It helped us as an organization to gain clarity on what ALP is seeking to embark on during this next phase of our journey. ALP’s next Executive Director is someone that has strong grassroots organizing skills, is familiar with the NYC political landscape, and can hold and build ALP”s work to continue building economic, gender and racial justice within this political moment to ensure our livelihood and to build political power rooted in transformation. Please spread the word to folks who you think would be a great ED for ALP!
