Escenthio “Thio” Marigny Jr.
WHAT CALLED YOU TO ACT?
I was called to act by my experiences with poverty and racism. These experiences led me to want to understand why myself and others were dehumanized. In the act of learning and organizing I realized the oppression people face isn’t natural and that another world is possible.
