SFI Roundtable Discussion

To conclude Black History Month, SFI is hosting a roundtable discussion for Black military veterans, partners, and family members. Participants will connect, share their personal stories, and brainstorm collective action. The purpose of this event will be to dive into the intersections between two important social movements in the United States: combatting Black racism, and demilitarizing foreign and domestic policies.

This session will include two parts:

  • Guest speakers: SFI has invited highly-informative guest speakers with expertise in Black history, story-telling, and movement-building. These presentations will no doubt inform and inspire!
  • Facilitated Discussion: Participants are invited to actively engage in conversation with each other about how our personal lived experiences can and should shape our community organizing toward a more peaceful and secure world.

Note: this is a closed door conversation. While we appreciate the support that allies can provide, we kindly ask that only members of the Black veteran and military family community sign up.

This roundtable will be the first of a four-part series, highlighting underrepresented voices within the military community.
