Space for Doing | Dismantling Structural Racism
on scheduled Thursdays at 12 PM EDT (New York time)
please refer to the monthly schedule
There is much to DO when it comes to dismantling structural racism and white economic supremacy.
Working to stop the mechanisms that allow for taxpayer-funded police brutality bonds seems like a good place to start.
We will unpack what we can do to advance the recommendations set out by this incredible research and to identify other ways we DO the dismantling.
The session will be held by the League Catalyst Saidah Nash Carter.
