Join The Rising Majority — including the Climate Justice Alliance, the Movement for Black Lives, 350.org and many other progressive organizations — for a two-day event on “Rising Against White Supremacist Terror Toward a Just World.”

The Rising Majority writes: “We are on the precipice of a historic moment, where we the people have to choose the political, economic, and moral direction of our communities and country. . . climate change staring us down as wildfires blaze out of control; millions of people impacted by COVID and over 175,000 senseless deaths due to government mismanagement of the pandemic, police emboldened to move with impunity; corporations profiting when millions are unemployed; and a president who is threatening to eliminate an already fragile democracy.”

October 17th will be the The People’s Tribunal
In the tradition of international tribunals against state terror , the Tribunal will lay out the crimes of U.S. policy and the policies and practices of dominant institutions that perpetuate white supremacy, state terror, racial capitalism, empire and hetero-patriarchy. . . . This tribunal will document, in human terms, the pain and suffering caused by current policies and practices.

Freedom Side Jurors Angela Y Davis, Alfred Woodfox, Raquel Willis, Oscar Lopez Rivera, Tom Goldtooth, Arundhati Roy, and others will receive testimonies from communities across the country.

October 18th will be The People’s Congress
The people’s congress will be an opportunity to build our collective vision for a just world and learn and share skills that will help us get there. Learn about The Breathe Act, The Green New Deal, and other visionary platforms we can win right now.
