You may have heard of BRUJAS before — the group of young activists in New York holding their own in the male-dominated skateparks spread through the city. But pinning BRUJAS as just a rare, female skate gang would be cursory at best. BRUJAS defines itself as “an urban, free-form, creative and autonomous organization that seeks to build radical political coalition through youth culture. The group expresses community through skateboarding, art and political organizing.”
Without further adieu, meet the New York skateboarders shaking the system beyond four wheels.
