Bayard Rustin

Eli Brown


Bayard Rustin, 1912–1987. "Loving your enemy is manifest in putting your arms not around the man, but around the social situation—to take power from those who misuse it, at which point they can become human too."

Rustin was a member of the Communist Party in his youth, and became a core organizer for the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s, being one the main organizers of the March on Washington. In addition, he was a member of the War Resisters League and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, and a life-long activist for socialism, nonviolence, and gay rights.

Seattle’s International Working Women’s Day for Palestine and Beyond

“We stand in solidarity with our Palestinian siblings in Gaza and those among our community who are directly and indirectly affected by the current war and genocide by the Israeli settler-colonial regime. Passive observation of the horrors of bombings, genocide, and prolonged apartheid is not our way. We must rise and firmly proclaim that Palestinian Liberation is a Feminist Imperative.” – Feminists for Jina Seattle
