Team Takes on Malayna:

Powerful in her empowerment of others

Seeks to understand, before seeking to be understood

Offers language to help the Team add meaning to what we are doing

Daring connector of ideas and people

Moves from awareness to action

These children were told, and encouraged…to be creative, to think for themselves, and to make sense. It is indeed because of such encouragement to the young that the increasingly ideological notions of freedom and democracy can be turned back upon the economically and politically powerful and made into truly transformative demands 

—Jean Anyon, 1981
