On Trauma and Social Change:
Examining psychological trauma contributes to the capacities of movements opposing oppression to achieve lasting social change.
It is only by unmasking trauma as a major factor affecting social change efforts that we can develop the tools we need to address it on anything like a consistent basis.
The first step, both simple and incredibly daunting, is to name the issue. This means identifying the connections between every kind of oppression and the traumatization of individuals on a mass scale.
It means a willingness to recognize trauma in the lives of those we identify as oppressors.
It requires the same kind of willingness to examine trauma in our own lives, in whatever configurations "we" are set off against "them."
It means recognizing traumatic rage as a force of enormous political magnitude, and the posing of myriad strategic questions about the mobilization of that force.
