By examining the resurgence of organized feminist protest movements in recent decades, this chapter argues that feminist activism and organization persists beyond and despite waves of visible struggle. Understanding this history requires critical attention to women of color feminists' uses of digital technologies as both activist and archival tools to galvanize movements and document their participation in them. Feminist movement-building is a multi-sited endeavor and we must listen to calls from black, indigenous, and people of color feminists to decolonize our feminist knowledge practices. One of Just Be's first campaigns was called Me Too, an initiative to establish solidarity and empathy between black women and girls who were survivors of sexual violence. The day after Trump's inauguration, more than three million people joined the Women's March to protest what his presence in the nation's highest office would mean for women and people of color.
