Radical Ritual In Trump Tower

Our Radical Ritual at Trump Tower is free writing gatherings on the 5th floor where the city mandated a public garden. We express our intimate privacy in the shadow of Evil.

The cop shot Philando through the window of his car as he reached for his identification. And now, with career racists in positions of Attorney General and President, communities of color cannot feel safer from federal monitoring of local police violence.
