'Marching Into the Class War': An Interview With Sarah Jaffe, Author of 'Necessary Trouble'

The first real conversation I had with Sarah Jaffe was on a school bus heading out for a series of direct actions—and a few brave arrests—in Washington, D.C., with 1,000 community leaders from National People’s Action and the National Domestic Workers Alliance. It was one of our biggest events of the year and leaders had come on planes, trains, and (mostly) automobiles to be there. For Sarah Jaffe, it was just another day of  doing what she does best.
