VENUE: Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture
ADDRESS: 515 Malcolm X Blvd, New York, NY 10037, USA
We must have a clear vision of a better world and challenge the architecture of injustice that targets Black and Latinx women with particular harshness. Black and Latinx women know the meaning of struggle well; we also know how to build community towards transformational change. We have ideas and models and believe in community and movement driven solutions.
The panel discussion includes Akiba Solomon (Colorlines), Jacqueline Ebanks (Commission on Gender Equity, Mayor's Office), Farah Tanis (Black Women's Blueprint) and Cathy Albisa (National Economic Social Rights Initiative) on what a new social contract grounded in universal but equitable systems, democracy driven by community control, and human rights for Black and Latinx women would look like and what it would mean for our communities.
This event is hosted by Black Women's Blueprint and the National Economic Social Rights Initiative.
