Invisible No More: Resisting Police Violence Against Black Women and Women of Color in Troubled Times
The U.S. has witnessed a return to intensified immigration enforcement, discredited drug war tactics, expansion of “broken windows” policing, rampant Islamophobia, and attacks on gender, sexual and reproductive liberation. This fuels police violence against trans and non-trans Black women and women of color on every front.
Join activists and scholars, including Kimberlé Williams Crenshaw, Reina Gossett, Mariame Kaba, Dean Spade ’97 and more for a conference exploring and building on the themes, trends, and organizing strategies outlined in Invisible No More: Police Violence Against Black Women and Women of Color by BCRW Researcher-in-Residence Andrea J. Ritchie. Participants identify strategies to challenge the conditions that produce police violence, and thus begin to radically re-envision our approaches to violence and safety.
On Friday, November 3 at 6:30 PM, there will be a roundtable discussion with Kimberlé Williams Crenshaw, Reina Gossett, Mariame Kaba, Robyn Maynard & Barbara Smith. Moderated by Tina Campt
