Workshop on Black Organizing for Economic Justice and Police Accountability…
The Social Justice Initiative at UIC
Wed, Aug 10 at 5:00 PM, Chicago, IL
The Movement for Black Lives has drawn attention to many problems and injustices in the Black community. Black youth have been key protestors, organizers and spokespersons for this movement. Charlene Carruthers, National Director of the byp100 has contributed to this work nationally. On August 10th, please join her for a workshop to examine the nuts and bolts of Black organizing for economic justice and police accountability in Chicago and beyond. She will offer an aerial view of the work overall in the U.S. and discuss some competing models for organizing, including different concepts of leadership and change. She will bring the sensibilities and politics of feminism and queer organizing to this discussion.
This workshop is designed for those who research, study or organize around juvenile justice, community-based organizing, social justice movements, and/or African American politics and history. It is for members of the UIC community as well as the larger Chicago area community.
Workshop materials and readings will be distributed beforehand, therefore registration is required. The workshop is free and open to all.
