AH&A “Our House” Ep.5: Richard Cardillo

A lesson from his students

Richard Cardillo has been collecting clues throughout his life that he could be a voice for others: from learning the power of opening up about his sexuality, to having a life-altering experience of privilege in Peru. Here's his story to becoming an LGBTQ+ rights activist and youth advocate.

Gays Against Guns NY is an inclusive direct action group of LGBTQ people and their allies committed to nonviolently breaking the gun industry's chain of death—investors, manufacturers, the NRA and politicians who block safer gun laws.

GAG is New York-based but works with chapters in other cities to ensure safety for all individuals, particularly vulnerable communities such as people of color, women, people who struggle with mental health issues, LGBTQ people and religious minorities. GAG condemns white supremacy, all instances of excessive force by police, and police militarization. 

Rise and Resist was formed in response to the 2016 U.S. election. RAR is a direct action group made up of both new and experienced activists committed to opposing, disrupting, and defeating any government act that threatens democracy, equality, and our civil liberties. RAR works collaboratively, creatively, respectfully, and with all the joy we can muster for the health of the people and the planet.
