This past Wednesday, Occupy Supply hosted a webinar on Racism and the Occupy Movement – the latest installment in our online discussion series featuring journalist and editor of “Re-Defining Black Power” Joanne Griffith and Occupy Detroit media coordinator Lee Gaddies.

In my opinion this was one of the best presentations we’ve had and we were so fortunate to finally be able to work out the kinks and get a recording of the entire talk. We hope to continue to be able to provide recordings of our Occupy Supply webinars so that these conversations, ideas, and strategies can be shared for the benefit of the entire movement.

We have been hoping to hold a webinar to analyze how Occupy can aid in struggles for racial justice and equality and how they can improve themselves to create a truly inclusive movement that is representative of the needs and concerns of communities of color. We know occupiers in places like Detroit have a lot of ideas and lessons they can share to the benefit of the movement, so we’re pleased to invite you to join our free online talk on Racism and the Occupy Movement with Lee Gaddies of Occupy Detroit and author and journalist Joanne Griffith this evening at 8pm eastern.
