Jamie Bauer (They, Them) trained over a thousand ACT UPers in nonviolent civil disobedience over the six or seven years that ACT UP was most active and remains one of the foremost trainers in the progressive movement to this day. Jamie went to MIT to study civil engineering, architecture and urban planning and earned a Master’s degree in transportation, which had a one-in-eight women-to-men ratio. In 1981, they returned to New York to work for the MTA, eventually as director of subway schedules. About two decades after their time in ACT UP, Jamie started to live as nonbinary. In the early 1980s, Jamie joined Women’s Pentagon Action, a mobilization to create a large women’s peace action directly confronting the Pentagon that included Grace Paley, Vera Williams, Eva Kollisch, Donna Gould, Sharon Kleinbaum, Toni Fitzpatrick, Laura Flanders and Harriet Hirschorn, among others. Jamie learned a lot about organizing, dealing with the police, insisting on the right to take space, and everything about doing politics on the street.
