Sarah Jaffe is the author of Necessary Trouble: Americans in Revolt, which Robin D.G. Kelley called “The most compelling social and political portrait of our age.” She is a Nation Institute reporting fellow and an independent journalist covering labor, economic justice, social movements, politics, gender, and pop culture.
