Join us along with our co-sponsors, Adalah Justice Project and Showing Up for Racial Justice, for the first Open Session of the 2021 Anne Braden Anti-Racist Training Program!*
Indigenous people are leading and winning fights to protect people, the planet and what is sacred. Come listen to, learn from, and be inspired by the visionaries who have been organizing at the forefront of movements from the Philippines, to Montana, to Ferguson and Palestine. Three brilliant community organizers will speak with us about the ongoing colonization of these places, and the politics and strategies of decolonial resistance. We will be joined by Krystal Two Bulls (Oglala Lakota & Northern Cheyenne, with NDN Collective), Sandra Tamari (with the Adalah Justice Project speaking on Palestine), and Irma Shauf-Bajar (with GABRIELA speaking on the Philippines) bios below.
