I am Keira Nasya Dixon. I am an organizer in the city of New Orleans. I am also an adult ally at breakOUT! I have worked to support several organizations in New Orleans such as Congresso, Women With a Vision, and the Peoples Assembly Women's committee. I am passionate about the work I do because I know Black & Brown Queer folks & people of color in general are directly impacted by different forms of oppression and criminalization. I want to see more organizations built and run by trans folk because I believe we can create our own safe spaces.
Presentations from Facing Race 2018
FRED Talks (Facing Race, Elevating Democracy) are videos produced at local events where activists and leaders share their stories and effective strategies for change. The stories and lived experiences of those most impacted by Mass Criminalization and Immigration are the foundations from which we weave our Movements. In order to shift narratives and break down systems of oppression we must amplify the voices of those who are leading the work.
FRED talks serve as a platform, a political education tool and a point of unapologetic connection. We are called to lean in, listen, teach and learn from the legacies of those who have innovated and upheld our Movements while creating a path for the change makers still to come.Roksana Mun, Marlon Peterson, Tawana Petty, Candi Brings Plenty, Ahya Simone, Kiera Dixson, Isa Noyola, Mama Rhonda Anderson
