Anti-Racism Protest in the United States: No Justice, No Peace

Fri June 5, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm EDT

Black Lives Matter protest

George Floyd’s atrocious murder at the hands of the police in Minneapolis, Minnesota on May 25 represents only the most recent incident of racism and police brutality in the United States.  The resulting protests have spread not only across major US cities, but have gone global.

The International Peace Bureau (IPB), the Campaign for Peace, Disarmament, and Common Security (CPDCS), and Peace Action have invited three racial justice and peace movement leaders to provide background about the institutional racism and structural violence that led to George Floyd’s murder, as well as the massive resistance to racism and police brutality.  Speakers include:

Karlene Griffiths Sekou, Black Lives Matter

Lewis Webb, American Friends Service Committee

Jim Anderson, Peace Action

Moderated by Joseph Gerson (AFSC) with concluding remarks by Philip Jennings (IPB).
