Vision for Black Lives Workshops

Thu November 3, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - Sat December 3, 2016 @ 8:00 pm EDT

Vision for Black Lives Workshops

The Movement for Black Lives has released the Vision for Black Lives.  Developed by some 50 participating organizations and embracing detailed agendas in 30 issue areas, the Vision for Black Lives is a comprehensive program for racial, social, and economic justice in the United States, as well as for a peaceful foreign policy.   Massachusetts Peace Action endorsed the Vision for Black Lives in September 2016.

In a series of 6 workshops, we’ll dive into each of the broad demand areas outlined in the platform and connect you to racial justice work happening in Greater Boston.

The Democracy Center, Black Lives Matter Cambridge, Anti-Racism Collaborative, Knapsack Anti-Racists, Make GE Pay, and SEIU 32BJ are collaborating on this series.

The Democracy Center is not wheelchair accessible, and all entrances have 5-6 steps.  Humanist Hub is accessible.  Children are welcome – let us know if you need more support around childcare.
