Co-Founder of Radical Drum Corps

In 2004, while living in Greensboro, North Carolina, I helped co-found a radical marching band, and although I have moved away from the area, it still operates to this day with a decentralized structure of rotating leaders that has outlived many generations of participants.

Cakalak Thunder exists to uplift and amplify all struggles seeking to dismantle oppression, and fight for the liberation of all peoples and our planet. It has travelled to massive mobilizations, anti-war protests, and the World Social Forum, but more importantly, shows up consistently to boost the power – and volume –  of local organizing.
