We are witnessing an unrelented rise in state attacks on the most basic social and economic safeguards which provide some relieve to nationally oppressed communities, while a new commitment to ramp-up social containment and mass incarceration policies has been declared by the Justice Department of Jeff Sessions.
We will never realize paths to liberation laid by those who have demonstrated [that] their national interests are served by our further oppression, by a regression toward quasi-Jim Crow Apartheid and second-class citizenship for new Afrikans, Latinos, immigrants, and the poor.
This leaves us with a single rationale course: to provide for ourselves those institutions which will ensure that our communities can feed, clothe, heal, house, educate and defend themselves; to build a new basis upon which we can all relate to one another, founded upon collective work and responsibility.
This is the reason Amend The 13th developed the Autonomous Infrastructure Mission (A.I.M.), because we understand the inescapable connection between intentionally underdeveloped and disenfranchised communities and the reality of legal slavery in Amerika.
But none of this insight will mean a thing without ACTION!
We are seeking serious, sincere and determined people willing to serve as local coordinators for the A.I.M. or one of its initiatives.
We are also seeking state and local coordinators to start chapters of Amend The 13th in your area (if one doesn’t already exist). Choose one of the support activities below and contact me directly or contact us online, and one of our activists will get back at you immediately. Our social practice is the surest path to the type of society we’d all like to live in. Join us in bringing it to life.
