Andrea Ritchie will lead a teach-in based on her latest book, Invisible No More: Police Violence Against Black Women and Women of Color, a timely examination of how women of color experience racial profiling, police brutality, and immigration enforcement. Placing individual stories in the broader context of the twin epidemics of police violence and mass incarceration, it documents the evolution of movements centering women of color’s experiences of policing and demands a radical rethinking of our visions of safety—and the means we devote to achieving it.
She will be joined in conversation by LaSaia Wade, Executive Director of Brave Space Alliance, and Eisha Love, a young Black trans woman who was criminalized for self-defense.
This event is part of Love & Protect’s Building Towards Freedom series, which seeks to raise awareness around criminalization of survival and the need for racial and gender justice movements to make their campaigns and spaces more inclusive to trans and gender non-conforming people.
This event is free and open to the public. Food will be provided. The
space is wheelchair accessible. For more accessibility and childcare
