Black & LGBTQ: At the intersection of a racist & homo/transphobic CJ system
June 30 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
The murder of George Floyd has brought renewed focus to police brutality against Black people in America. With the rates of profiling, arrest, violence, and sexual assault perpetrated by police on LGBTQ people of color unacceptably high, especially for trans women, what can be done to create more inclusive policy solutions that address these problems?
David Johns, executive director of the National Black Justice Coalition; Janetta Louise Johnson, executive director of the TGI Justice Project; and Andrea J. Ritchie is a Black lesbian immigrant police misconduct attorney and organizer, will join us for a discussion exploring the policing practices impacting Black LGBTQ people and what they mean for the LGBTQ and criminal justice reform advocacy movements. The Raben Group’s Donald Gatlin will guide the conversation.
