What is “Making Good Trouble?” Well, for Meredith, it’s doing little things that you’re “not supposed to do” but aren’t wrong either. It’s taking every paint sample in the hardware store, carrying around a rubber dinosaur with you everywhere you go, having rainbow jell-o for breakfast, etc. “Making good trouble” is sticking up for what you believe in. For Meredith, that means advocating to save the US Postal Service and challenging what fine art in academia is. Making good trouble means sticking up for others, no matter what ethnicity, gender, sexuality, age, religion, or economic status a person has.
