COVID Recap Webinar: the Right to Protest

 Registration is closed for this event

This week, we’ll talk with ACLU Maine’s Michael Kabede about the Black Lives Matter movement, civil rights, civil disobedience, racial disparities, and the rights of protesters. Don’t miss it.

The themes of the talk are: the judicial strategy versus the movement strategy; the nonprofit infrastructure versus the social movement infrastructure; police reform versus radical socioeconomic transformation; the vision of Barack Obama versus the vision of Patrice Cullors, Opal Tometi, and Alicia Garza; electioneering versus structural change. 

Michael will spend some time describing the case studies of Colorado's recent reformism versus Minneapolis's radicalism, and finish by comparing our local movements' demands with Maine's local and state governments' move to scrutinize police policy.
