We do not dispute the powerful role of digital activism in modern social movements. However, for enduring change, personal connections must be forged. Threaded online discussion of deep / difficult topics is fraught. To surmount these constraints, we bring people together offline. When this is impractical, multimedia implements can render a whole person and better level the walls erected by race, class, religion, geography, age, ability, gender, sexual orientation. Join other digital activists for a lively discussion! Pantsuit Republic (a large post-partisan feminist group in Texas) and Indivisible Houston trade the 140-character miasma for real conversations as the substrate for change.
