Addressing Anti Blackness Teach-in

Participants will be able to:
Identify how anti-Blackness shows up in their communities, movements, and society
Draw a connection between policing and anti-Blackness
Develop collective tools for addressing anti-Blackness
Identify tools to help divest from systematic injustice, intentional harm in Black communities

We will focus on different layers:
-Narrative: who gets to share
-Systematic: white patriarchy/Patriarchy & centering, call for reparations
-Communal: not protecting Black women
-Personal: checklist

Speakers: Felicia Arriaga, Blu Lewis
