Analyze and apply intersectionality to anti-racist practice
Black, Indigenous, and People of Color are fighting everyday to live free from all forms of violence.
In the aftermath of the murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor (among many others) many White people have taken to social media to express outrage; but, this is not enough, we must do more.
Join a community conversation to learn about anti-racist practices, hear about strategic actions that you can take to advance racial justice in your community, and share resources to strengthen your capacity to be a stronger advocate in the fight for a more just world. This event will start with a one hour lecture followed by one hour of Q&A.
