White Backlash: why it happens and how we fight back
Gennaio 14 @ 2:00 - 20:00
In light of last week’s events, join Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ)
on Wednesday, January 13 at 5 pm PT/8 pm ET for a mass webinar, “White Backlash: why it happens and how we fight back” with leading movement scholar-activist, Robin DG Kelley.
The far right mob storming the US Capitol building on January 6th caused outrage across the world, but this kind of event is part of a long history of white organized backlash to Black-led struggle and victories. As people committed to organizing white communities for racial justice, we must understand this situation in its historical context in order to be able to strategically build power to fight back. Join Showing Up for Racial Justice and leading activist scholar Robin DG Kelley to learn more about this historical trend and to join the work of fighting back.
If the webinar reaches capacity, it will also be live-streamed on our Facebook page: facebook.com/showingupforracialjustice
There will be live ASL interpretation on this webinar.
Dr. Kelley will share about the historical context of white backlash to Black movement victories and what this legacy means today, and we’ll give you ways to plug into SURJ’s work of organizing white communities to undermine white supremacy.
