Community Organizing in the midst of a Pandemic and Ongoing Police Abuse

Description

We will visit the gains of the civil rights era and the continued fight for justice and equality in our schools, prisons, streets, housing, interactions with the police and the judicial process. Those that choose the life of community organizing know there is rarely a day off. How we fight today uses some of the best practices from yesterday while embracing that our youth want action now, better and together.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand organizing in context of where you live while embracing the global connections.

  • Understand the terminology has changed but we still want change. Choose your words wisely.

  • Identify tips from the front lines in 2020. It’s a family affair. Why we must start to be change in our very own homes first.
