What Does Racism Have to Do with It? Come Find Out! @ Oscar Grant Plaza
Oct 13 @ 1:30 pm – 4:00 pm

Saturday, October 15 at 1:30: What Does Racism Have to Do with It? Come Find Out!

At Seminary of the Street, we are aware that some white occupiers have raised questions about what racism has to do with protesting Wall Street, what a critique of the police has to do with that, and why they might be asked to leave a meeting of a subcommittee on issues faced by people of color. We are coordinating some antiracism trainers to be available for those conversations on Saturday, October 15, at 1:30. We’ll have materials available that explain the role that racism has played and continues to play in the economic exploitation of the 99%. All are welcome to come with a spirit of respect and inquiry. For now, here are a couple of good background articles:

What Does Occupy Oakland Mean for People of Color @ Revolutionary Cafe
Oct 15 @ 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Occupy Oakland started today. It was a beautiful gathering of people from all races and walks of life.  This has the potential to be an amazing shift in the power structures that run Oakland.  That said, we need to be sure that there is an agenda that includes our immediate and long term needs as historically oppressed people.  The question is … what is that agenda?  We are calling on people of color to come together at the Revolution Cafe and figure out what we would like to see out of and how we can/want to support the occupation of Oakland.
