what does good trouble mean to us?

Good Trouble comes from the words of the late civil rights activist, John Lewis, who once said “Never, ever be afraid to make some noise and get in good trouble, necessary trouble.” 


Good Trouble means subverting the systems of inequity in our lives. We work to dismantle these systems brick by brick in order to build back a society grounded in restorative justice. To build back a society that is anti-capitalist and values life over property. 


Good Trouble means civil disobedience and taking matters into our own hands. It means pushing for structural change and fighting on the ground. It means keeping each other safe in a system that criminalizes Blackness.
