ABOUT COMMUNITY RUMMAGE
Our origins and our mission forward
Founded in the wake of a pandemic, a national social reckoning on race, and the continued reminders the government was never for us, community rummage stands to build space for creatives have always had to fight for place at the table. At community rummage we represent creatives in all their shapes and sizes, ethnicities and sexualities. In that spirit we acknowledge that creatives with intersectional considerations deserve to be uplifted by the entire movement. We pledge to listen and give room to those voices here.

The wise words we live by and invite you to investigate
by Mikki Kendall
I'm a feminist. Mostly.
I'm an asshole. Mostly.
All too often the focus of mainstream feminism is not on basic survival for the many, but on increasing privilege for the few.
Meeting basic needs is a feminist issue. Food insecurity, the living wage and access to education are feminist issues. The fight against racism, ableism and transmisogyny are all feminist issues.
White feminists often fail to see how race, class, sexual orientation and disability intersect with gender. How can feminists stand in solidarity as a movement when there is a distinct likelihood that some women are oppressing others?
Insightful, incendiary and ultimately hopeful, Hood Feminism is both an irrefutable indictment of a movement in flux and also clear-eyed assessment of how to save it.
WE DON’T WANT TO BE THE STARS
This is a grassroots organizing and training curriculum rooted in lessons from multi-racial, cross-class, feminist organizing. It is for emerging or established groups and organizations working to get into good trouble here and now in 2020 and beyond, as we confront a world where our economic, governance, and ecological systems are literally on the brink of collapse. The curriculum is built for groups aiming to build a feminist future that is Pro-Black, Pro-Worker, Pro-Queer, Pro-Immigrant, and Pro-Planet.
“WE DON’T WANT TO BE STARS, BUT PARTS OF CONSTELLATIONS.”
