MAKING MEANING OUT OF THIS MOMENT OF CRISIS: Forging an Abolitionist Strategy for Defending Black Communities
Join The Movement For Black Lives and The Rising Majority on Saturday at 10amPT/12pmCT/1pmET for a national call about the current resistance and how we can show up In Defense of Black Lives.
Cities across the country have erupted in protest and many are in flames. The horrific and violent murders of George Floyd, Nina Pop, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, Ahmaud Arbery, and Dreasjon Reed are inexcusable.
The compounding crisis of COVID-19 and increased police brutality speaks to the interconnected nature of white supremacy, racial capitalism, and the role of state sanctioned terrorism. Our communities continue to be overpoliced and under-served. That is the backdrop to righteous anger and uprisings we have seen these past few weeks.
We unapologetically call out these forces of terror and demand structural and fundamental change. Join us as we speak truth to power, harness our collective power in defense of Black lives, and chart a new pathway towards freedom.
