Rosa Clemente has been a community organizer, scholar, journalist and Hip Hop activist for more than 20 years. In the 2008 U.S. election Clemente was the Green Party Vice Presidential running mate with Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney. The pair comprised the first women of color ticket in American History.
For me its not only about holding the President, the House of Representatives, or the United States Senate accountable. Holding public officials accountable is important, but building a multiracial social justice movement is a necessity for our very existence.
