create change.

"Change never ever happens in a snap.  It took people of color decades to get civil rights in this country.  It will take decades for people to undersand that education should be a right for everyone, just as it's taken decades for people to begin to understand that health care is a right.  But in order to get the wheels turning, we have to start now." -Emmy

First off, this girl has amazing rhetoric and our dialogues are always so fascinating to me. Whether it's listening to her speak at teach-ins or staying up on AIM until nearly 3 a.m., our conversations always keep the wheels of my brain turning.

And now to the questions of the moment: How do we create change? What inspires it? How do we make our voices heard? How do we ignite the flames we hope to spread across the state?
