This is a virtual event
A multi-racial panel of mothers and other caregivers will speak out about:
Their experiences of living in poverty
Having their children removed by child welfare not because of abuse but because the families are impoverished (including water cut offs) or because their mothers were victims of domestic violence
The criminalization of poverty and its relationship to mass incarceration
How they have come together with others to fight back
The relationship between their conditions of poverty and systemic racism, the war economy, destruction of the environment and the violence and oppression of the market focused economy.
Zoom link info will be sent out closer to the event date. Stay tuned for details.
