Blu Buchanan

Blu Buchanan (they/them) is a Black non-binary femme and PhD Candidate in sociology at UC Davis. Their scholarly interests lie in the areas of homonationalism, whiteness studies, and conservative social movements. Their work as a writer and organizer has focused on feminism, justice, and combating the rise of far-right and white supremacist organizations — both locally and nationally. As a Black trans writer, they hope to embody the call by Assata Shakur that “We must love each other and support each other. We have nothing to lose but our chains.”
