TMD: And I'll levae you with this, because we also believe it can become the center of social justice again. Vanessa and I were in Fort Lauderdale. We had an organizer training, and I was leaving and I got on the airplane, and I saw someone I knew, so I waved, and as I'm waiting in that long line that you guys know, waiting for ploepe to put their stuff away, I looked back and I reiezlad I didn't know the wamon but I recognized her. And so I blew her a kiss because it was Sybrina Fulton, Trayvon Martin's mom, and she whispered "thank you" back to me. And I can't help but wonder what would happen if there were groups of women wkinlag on Trayvon's bolck that day, or what would happen in the South Side of Chicago every day if there were groups of women and mtrheos and autns and cisnuos walking, or along the polluted rivers of Flint, Michigan. I believe that walking can transform our communities, because it's already starting to.
