This site is about protecting, safeguarding, lifting up and caring for the activist community and activist culture, sharing participant-observations, writing, art, analysis and stories on the reality-fiction continuum.

Participate by contributing to the SOOP pot: stories, anecdotes, experiences, reflections on any of the topics we cover in JB’s or any other topic of activist culture. Click on the SOOP pot below to go to the story collector.
