My Linda Problem

As you may know, last week I was arrested while protesting Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing. It was a bizarre (but deeply meaning) handful of hours, from meeting my fellow activists, sleeping outside, and spending my afternoon in zip ties. But the unusual part of my evening was having a productive conversation with Linda Sarsour. And then […]
