WAC: Women's Action Coalition, New York City, 1992...
The Women's Action Coalition made itself a remarkable -- if fallible organization -- transforming the political landscape with direct action, extraordinary collaboration and creative intelligence. Our work set some records and our know-how remains a largely untapped reservoir of our individual work and insights today.
For the full story, read my chapter: Louder than Words: A W.A.C. Chronicle, in But Is It Art?: The Spirit of Art As Activism, edited by Nin Felshin and published by Bay Press, Seattle, 1995.
From January 1992 through 1994, I was a founding member of WAC's media committee, authoring most of the early press releases by which -- along with our graphics and our drum corp -- garnered national and international media attention. My roles were many: media liaison, action strategist, spokesperson and philosopher-at-large. As WAC grew and my phone number was released as the office number, I also assumed the coordination WACNET, the network of affiliate groups across U.S. and internationally.
