resist, Black Lives Matter, fighting jail expansion


RESIST is a 12 part docu-series coproduced by Patrisse and directed by Tani Ikeda, Mobolaji Olambiwonnu, and Nathalie Johns in partnership with digital media company blackpills.

The series follows the grassroots work of Los Angeles organizations fighting the county’s $3.5 billion jail expansion plan.

Primarily focusing on the work of Patrisse and other members of JusticeLA including Jayda Rasberry of Dignity and Power Now, Helen Jones of Dignity and Power Now and Black Lives Matter Los Angeles, Bambi Salcedo of TransLatina Coalition, and Johnathan Perez of Immigrant Youth Coalition, the series is a beautiful and inspiring look into the motivations and daily struggles of movement workers on the ground.
