George Floyd’s murder by four Minneapolis policemen ignited a firestorm of protest in major cities and small towns throughout the US and globally. A Black-led movement demanding police accountability and justice has galvanized multi-racial anger and frustration over the repeated killings of Black men and women. We are witnessing a pivotal uprising that will reshape our relationship with Black lives, and will have profound implications for our collective future.
Join us for a live-streamed event featuring organizers on the front lines in Minneapolis, Los Angeles, Chicago, New York and other cities, along with Professor john a. powell (Othering and Belonging Institute), Linda Sarsour (Until Freedom), and Rev. Michael McBride (Live Free USA and Faith in Action). We will examine the history and impact of police violence and inequality on the Black community, the current context of white supremacy and Black resistance, and the possibilities and strategies for a racial justice future.
This event is organized by the Othering & Belonging Institute in partnership with the Community Action Partnership, International SEIU, and Race Forward. For more information visit: https://www.riseup4justice.org/
