A GAME FOR OUR TIMES: Organizing for Humans is both a teaching tool and a process that provides structure and equity for the planning aspect in organizing. Those of you who have participated in movements or groups can attest to the fact that no matter how anti-establishment or revolutionary a group may aim to be, it is still subject to the acculturation of those who participate in it. This means race, gender, religion, orientation, language, educational background and class can all act as strictures that undermine the organizing process with hierarchical behavior by participants. O4H attempts to alleviate this through the randomization of roles in its planning process. While this is set up as a “game” and can be fun, we stress that this is a tool so that we can cogently format plans to make this world a better place. It is designed to be applicable to whatever type of social justice mission you plan to undertake.
The symbols on the back of the O4H cards are an Adinkra Symbols. These symbols are from Ghana West Africa and were originally used for funeral rites, but have evolved to be cultural signifiers of values and principles. The two represented here are indicative of what we hope Organizing 4 Humans inspires: this particular one on the left is called “Wo Nsa Da Mu A”, which represents hands sharing a dish which can be interpreted as democracy and pluralism. The Adinkra on the right is is called “mmere dane”, which represents changes or life's dynamics.
