Models for Fighting Racism & White Supremacy
Organizers Forum: Models for Fighting Racism & White Supremacy. Hosted by Organizer's Forum
Tuesday, October 15, 2019 at 10 AM – 11 AM 2019.
Thanks to those who joined the August call about fighting racism and white supremacy in disability organizations and the disability rights movement! Following up on that call, let's look around and outside our communities to see what others are doing and what we can learn. We will hear from people in white-led organizations about what they are doing to fight white supremacy inside and outside their organizations, and how white-led organizations can set up structures of accountability to communities of color.
