Centering People of Color at the protests
Cammie Pavesic is an actor, director, producer, activist and union thug. She has been attending the Black Lives Matter protests in Portland, Oregon, as a participant with the “Wall of Moms.” She was born in Denver, grew up in Idaho, earned a Bachelors degree at Boise State University and attended the National Shakespeare Conservatory in NYC. She is married with one step daughter and two grandchildren. She directed the documentary, “Add the Words,” about the campaign to add sexual orientation as a protected class to the Idaho constitution. You can find her on IMDB.
On July 25th, Cammie and I conversed on the phone, and started off about her 30 years of union organizing around the country. Regarding the protests in Portland, our discussion specifically focused on the efforts there to center people of color and Black Lives Matter (despite what the media might do). We ended by talking about her documentary.
