Join us for a session to learn about the #Blacklivesmatter movement and its relationship with white supremacy. We will address questions, such as: what is the #Blacklivesmatter movement, its history and what it is accomplishing, and concepts like white supremacy, white fragility, and power. We will provide municipalities with suggestions for hands-on solutions for responding to the #Blacklivesmatter movement in ways that are supportive but also action-orientated.
This session is followed by sessions about disability, gender, queer, and transformative justice. Attendance in the previous sessions is encouraged but NOT REQUIRED.
In this session you will learn:
- The importance of the #Blacklivesmatter movement
- Understanding whiteness
- Sustainable actions municipalities can take in the now and moving forward
