In this 21st century movement for justice, suits have been traded in for hoodies, organizing pamphlets have been traded in for tweets and Facebook groups, and the single-leader mentality has been traded in for decentralized leadership strategy. In the wake of the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner, protests sprung up across the world, from Ferguson to NYC, Miami to Oakland and London to Paris, and many other municipalities and towns in between. All led by young people who felt like they could no longer sit on the sidelines. Through the sectors of activism, media, music, the arts, and politics, new leaders are emerging in this new movement. New rules….New voices….New leaders. Get it? Now, let REVOLT tell you who’s got it.
