What role can white people play in the fight for racial justice?|
Join us for a documentary film screening of "Anne Braden: Southern Patriot" by Mimi Pickering and Anne Lewis, about the life of civil rights leader Anne Braden and her work organizing white communities in the South for racial justice.
This event is a fundraiser for the Catalyst Project (http://collectiveliberation.org/), and their important work training and supporting white, anti-racist leaders in California and across the country.
The film screening will be followed by a panel discussion linking Anne Braden's civil rights work with contemporary struggles for racial justice.
