Civil Rights and Equity Tu Lucha Es Mi Lucha: Standing Together As Allies

History will record 2020 as the year when the killing of George Floyd under the knee of a white police officer ignited a movement to confront structural racism in America. A panel of civil rights leaders challenging the status quo will discuss the recent flashpoints that have brought the needs of communities of color to the forefront of our collective consciousness. During this dialogue speakers will touch on police brutality, the Black Lives Matter movement, COVID-19, the SCOTUS decision on LGBTQ+ and DACA, plus more and how these social challenges are impacting a broad coalition of activism and organizing at the national and local level.
