About the hosts
Monica Trinidad and Page May have been co-strugglers since 2014, commencing their friendship by traveling to the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland, representing We Charge Genocide in a delegation with six other activists and organizers. Since then, they've participated in several campaigns, efforts, and direct actions together in Chicago, from the #ByeAnita campaign to most recently the No Cop Academy campaign.
Their nerdery, love for books, and love for people has led them to launch this podcast series as an additional resource to offer their community in this time of desperation, movement, and struggle.
Page May (she/they) is a Black, queer woman currently living as an organizer, educator and abolitionist in Chicago. Growing up in rural Vermont, Page moved to Chicago several years ago and began doing work around agriculture and food. She became radicalized doing work around prisons and police, and joined the effort We Charge Genocide. Page was one of eight youth delegates who traveled to the United Nations and was the lead author of the shadow report submitted to the UN Committee Against Torture.
Page is the co-founder of Assata's Daughters, an intergenerational organizing collective of radical Black women located in the city of Chicago.
