nonprofits,local leaders & Grt.New Haven business sharing information
Please join us for an important call to engage more white people in racial justice work in the aftermath of the Grand Jury in Ferguson. We will be discussing state violence and the impact it has in all of our communities, specifically communities of color. We will share strategies for engaging white people in the current moment and beyond. The recent murders of Akai Gurley, in Brooklyn and Tamir Rice and Tanesha Anderson in Cleveland (and the list grows) are tragic reminders of the need for national coordination and bold action.
This a call for white people who are:
-- Currently or interested in organizing locally for racial justice;
-- Engaging in hard conversations with family and friends on race and need more tools
It is being convened by Showing Up for Racial Justice- SURJ (showingupforracialjustice.org) in coordination with FergusonAction.com.
