What is Direct Action?

Quite simply, direct action is when a group of people work together to fix a problem that directly impacts them. It may be angry. It may be hopeful. It will be confrontational.

At its core is an analysis of power, a focus on building relationships, and an intention to transform the relations of power. 

Assata’s Daughters organizes for abolition: of the police, prisons, and all other forms of anti-blackness. Collectively, we work to build up alternative institutions and the means for self-determination.
