For the protest movement, it’s both good policy and good politics right now to focus on specific demands: abandon “broken windows” policing, abolish arrest quotas and push for independent prosecutors when abuses occur.

"Stop Blaming Protests for Police Killings", The Nation, 23 December 2014, http://www.thenation.com/article/193769/police-and-protests.

In these times of crisis, we, as a community, must allow room for multiple conversations and solutions [in the #BlackLivesMatter movement].

"Let's make room for other forms of resistance in the #BlackLivesMatter movement", Crain's Chicago Business, 25 November 2015, http://www.chicagobusiness.com/article/20151125/OPINION/151129888/lets-make-room-for-other-forms-of-resistance-in-the-blacklivesmatter-movement.

On Donald Trump:
I think that people are saying, 'Mr. Trump, we have come too far in this country fighting discrimination and bigotry. We’re not going back. And if you’re going to continue that effort, you’re going to have to take us on.'

Susan Page , "Sanders backs Trump protests, questions Electoral College", USA Today, 13 November 2016, http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/elections/2016/11/13/sanders-backs-trump-protests-questions-electoral-college/93767186/.

The struggle is not a struggle that lasts one day or a few weeks or a few years. It is a struggle of a lifetime.

[Student protesters] putting themselves out there so publicly, with their future on the line, is worthy of adult support.

"The kids are right to protest Trump", Los Angeles Times, 17 November 2016, http://www.latimes.com/opinion/op-ed/la-oe-arellano-student-walkouts-20161117-story.html
