Defending Our Communities, Defending Our Lives – Former Women Political Prisoners Speak Out for International Women’s History Month
Across the U.S. and the globe, unprecedented health, economic and social crisis is leading to escalating violence against BIPOC communities, often targeting women and TGNC people in particular. Over 10,000 people were arrested in the course of the 2020 uprisings after George Floyd’s murder, but they have largely been disappeared from public view. Women who have been imprisoned for defending themselves and their communities have much to teach us about resisting state violence.  Join us for a conversation with four courageous women who have stood up for their lives and their communities.
