Abstract:

In this communiqué the Institute on Inequality and Democracy foregrounds the work of some of their movement partners — more appropriately understood as movement teachers — organizations that are on the frontline of the struggle against disposability and death in Los Angeles and beyond. They demonstrate the necessity of building a new common sense about relations of property and personhood, debt and wealth, reparation and redistribution.
