Say Her Name: Shifting Strategies in Movements for Police Accountability and Reproductive Justice

Numerous Black women have been killed by or after encounters with police, yet Black women have been erased from the national conversation on police killings. How is state violence experienced by Black women, girls, and gender nonconforming people in ways that are similar and different to other members of our communities? How do individual incidents reflect long standing patterns of gender and sexuality-specific policing and criminalization of race, poverty and place? What is the role of law enforcement in regulating racially gendered bodies and sexualities in the carceral state? How does bringing Black women's experiences to the center of the current discourse around racial profiling, police violence, mass incarceration expand our understanding of the issues and shift our strategies and demands? Join us for a collective conversation, skill share, and strategy session around these questions and more!
