WHAT YOU'LL LEARN
(00:03:29) Creating a Positive Space/What to Expect Questions:
(00:08:03) What does it mean to be an anti-racist ally?
(00:20:11) How does the outcome of the election impact the work of anti-racism both in individuals and also at the system level?
(00:34:20) Some say the defund the police movement is a big part of what pushed black voters to the polls delivering Biden to win but others say it’s what cost Jamie Harrison his South Carolina Senate seat who’s right and what does that mean for who we should be talking about defunding the police moving forward?
(00:41:16) Do you think that there would have been less than a polarizing reaction if the message was “decriminalize the police” or would that perception be that the left was still anti-police?
(00:54:25) How do I talk to my friends and relatives about looting and rioting? Some take it as an immediate dismissal to the message. How can I verbalize the painful complexity of looting and rioting may be coming from?
