ACT UP Will Be Here Again

(p.187) Epilogue
Mobilizing New York

Tamar W. Carroll

University of North Carolina Press

This concluding chapter recapitulates the main subjects of the book: women and men who participated in direct action and coalition building as community activists in New York City, crossing boundaries of race, class, gender, and sexuality in the process. Activists in this study brought previously excluded groups from the margins to the center of political decision making and made voices heard and needs recognized. By claiming their rights and those of others, they helped envision and practice a more inclusive, egalitarian citizenship. Most importantly, they showed that the embrace of difference and the conflict that emerges from demands for social justice can be a dynamic motor of social change.

Keywords:   community activists, political decision, egalitarian citizenship, social justice, social change
