“How to explain war to a three-year-old? The pregnancy and parenting books didn’t prepare me for this.
I took a deep breath. “Well, war is when one country sends people to kill the people in another country.”

“The next time there’s a war, we should go out on the streets and march and say, ‘No war,'” she continued.”
-Vikki Law “Doing it All…and then Again With Child” in Revolutionary Mothering: Love on the Front Lines
We are so proud to have this beautiful piece by Vikki Law on how her anti-war activism and activism in collaboration with mothers in prison has been impacted by her daughter and her experiences of mothering within an activist movement.
