This presentation will explore the limits of dominant feminist theories of activism emerging primarily out of the social sciences that tend to privilege institutionalization and neo-liberal theories of global civil society as the horizon of social change struggles. We will then turn to the science fiction of Octavia Butler, specifically her short story "Amnesty," to think critically about NGO-centric political imaginaries and, moreover, to work towards creatively expanding how anti-racist feminist social movements imagine activism in the contemporary moment.
