You Can’t Quarantine Racism: Discussing our Legacy of White Impunity

May 26 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

The murders of Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor  are absolutely tragic. Their needless deaths were motivated by a racial hatred that has existed since our country’s founding. While we mourn their loss, we also mourn the countless black men and women who have been lynched before them. We’re outraged at their deaths and outraged that justice for them and their families has not been delivered; we’re outraged that video recording is a prerequisite for justice for black murder victims only. White people going unpunished for racist, brutal acts is the rule, not the exception, in America. What will we do in this current moment to stop the murders of black and brown people, to amplify the voices saying, “#WeAreDoneDying“?
Join us for “You Can’t Quarantine Racism: Discussing our Legacy of White Impunity”, an event aimed at providing space for inter and intraracial dialogue, to grieve and process state sanctioned violence against African Americans, and to explore how white allies must do better. 
All are welcome to join in this participant-led, candid conversation. Registration is required but free.
