One thought on “What’s new

  1. Rachel Victoria says:

    I have the privilege of having a family connection with Enceno Macy, and his mother Carol. Carol periodically sends me links to Enceno’s articles. Recently I received this link for his most recent piece, “The Chance to Make a Difference.”


    Enceno is 30 years old, imprisoned since the age of 15, for a crime he didn’t commit. In his most recent article, he reflects on the Occupy movement and offers advice and a passionate plea to Occupiers:

    “I want to cry out now to each of them not to give up, not to blow this chance to make a difference.”

    His words remind me of the stakes involved in this movement and that we can never forget why we are doing this. Our success lies in our ability to see how each of us suffers from oppression, whether we find it in our homes, schools, workplaces, or prisons. When we reach out to join with others to challenge and overcome all forms of oppression, we find healing and empowerment through our solidarity with each other.

    When I consider the sheer numbers of people impacted by the prison industrial complex, and the unspeakable tragedy of it, it is easy to feel overwhelmed. But Enceno asks:

    ” What would happen, I wonder, if just one relative or friend of every prisoner and ex-con in the U.S. got together in an Occupy event? That would be more than 2.2 million people – enough to have an impact, maybe?”

    And I realize that now (perhaps for the first time in my life) I have an opportunity to raise my one voice and add it to the voices of so many others, calling out for an end to this injustice. I am moved and inspired. Thank you Enceno!

    Together, we are the ones we have been waiting for.
