In reflecting on the systemic racial injustice in this country, many of us are leaning in as Black/Immigrants and refugees and engaging in an important internal work, unpacking and exploring our own anti-Blackness sentiments within our respective communities. We have some unlearning to do. We are also aware that some of us live at the intersection, but anti-Blackness lives within us too.
Pride 2020 for the ACLU is about being resilient together. For this virtual event, advocates will speak on the implications of the landmark win at the Supreme Court, how to center Black trans people in the movement and the Trump administration’s removal of nondiscrimination protections when it comes to health care and health insurance.
