Lessons In Liberation: Anti-Racism in Organizing, Advocacy and Policy

Start: Wednesday, August 12, 2020 3:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time (US & Canada) (GMT-04:00)

End: Wednesday, August 12, 2020 4:30 PM Eastern Daylight Time (US & Canada) (GMT-04:00)


Making a real commitment to anti-racism in the fight for justice across organizing, advocacy, and policy platforms is essential to ensuring that we all begin to build the kind of future that truly embraces equity and equality. This commitment requires that we don't just speak about the work, but that we actually do the work as well.

In this workshop, join longtime human rights activist and author of "Towards Humanity: Shifting the Culture of Anti-Racism Organizing," Tawana Petty, as she discusses her theory on moving from solidarity to co-liberation in building anti-racist spaces, how her own work incorporates these principles, and how we can all incorporate anti-racism into our daily lives.

In addition, the workshop will include dynamic speakers who will discuss what anti-racism in their work looks like using real-world examples. This panel includes community organizer and activist Tinu Roland of We The People MI and BYP 100, civil rights lawyer and Professor Peter Hammer, collaborative anthropologist and Professor Dr. Andrew Newman, Michigan State House Representative Sarah Anthony, and BridgeDetroit Engagement Director Orlando Bailey.

Creating a more just world begins with you! We hope to see you there!
