In an effort to bring our audience an authentic look into the activism taking place “on the ground,” Rescripted will be periodically featuring protests and highlighting the unseen heroes who are bringing restorative justice to the underrepresented masses.
In the wake of protests happening all over the country, sparked by the national outrage over the untimely deaths of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and George Floyd, local activists have been taking the revolution into their own hands. Mobilizing protests in virtually every neighborhood across the metropolitan area, many activists have spearheaded efforts that have led to an unprecedented call to action against police brutality and racial inequality. One such activist is Jocelyn Prince, who orchestrated an ongoing interactive protest called #HonkForJustice. Every day Jocelyn corrals protesters to different intersections on the North Side of Chicago where they occupy the sidewalks, wave signs, chant and get drivers to honk their car horns. According to the open Facebook invite page, Jocelyn was “sick and tired of being sick and tired.” In addition to this recent organizing effort, Jocelyn is also a frequent staffer and volunteer with the Democratic Party. She was a staff field organizer for both Obama and Hilary Clinton as well as the 2020 Kamala Harris For The People campaign.
