Women of Color Resist Police Violence

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The national conversation around police profiling and violence which erupted in the last year has featured an unprecedented explosion of media highlighting the experiences of Black women and women of color - queer and not queer, trans and not trans - with profiling and police brutality. Drawing on participants’ expertise, we will surface ways policing targets women of color, survey media that raises the visibility of our experiences, and collectively develop strategies to center Black women and women of color's stories, voices and analyses!
