No one from the Pennsylvania delegation serves on this committee. Would you participate if they did? Would you risk arrest and/or being cited?
When I think about this, I have to keep in my mind my career as a social worker. I have to maintain my criminal history clearances, both in PA and through the FBI. Given the disparity with which arresting officials and the courts respond to these demonstrations … it is a tough call.
Or I am just taking the easy way out? We don't have a direct action group in Pittsburgh except for Bash Back and that's not quite what I'm looking for. It would be great to sit down with the old school activists and have that conversation.
