ilding-a-multi-racial-movement-for-justice/> & Economic Inequality: Building
a multi-racial movement for justice
with Camilo Viveiros
Set your Internet Browser to OBR.FM.
The Occupy movement has always been much about economic inequality and
economic injustice, but the racialization of inequality has not always been
emphasized. The mainstream media loves to highlight stories of middle class
families losing their jobs or their homes, but people in racial minority or
immigrant communities bear a disproportional burden: first fired, last
hired, hugely targeted by predatory mortgage lenders in good times, their
communities decimated by foreclosures during the crisis. How can we educate
ourselves about the racialized aspects of economic inequality? How are
working class people of color organizing themselves to fight injustice? And
how can we learn from them, and work with them to build a truly global,
multi-racial movement for economic justice? Community organizer Camilo
Vivieros will help us explore and answer these questions.
Camilo Viveiros has worked on immigrant worker issues and
multi-ethnic/multi-racial economic and environmental justice organizing with
students, youth and seniors in New England. He has worked for the
Massachusetts Alliance of HUD Tenants, and the Massachusetts Senior Action
Council. For two years, he was Executive Director of Rhode Island Jobs with
Justice. He is currently lead organizer for the George Wiley Center in Rhode
Island, along with providing direct action, organizing and campaign
development trainings for diverse grassroots groups around the country. Born
to immigrant parents, Camilo was raised in the working class immigrant
community of Fall River. He has been involved in work for social justice for
virtually his whole life. Over the years he has organized for unions of the
homeless, welfare rights unions, against the prison industrial complex and
many different issues. He has a background in tenant, youth and
congregation-based organizing and gained national media exposure in 2000
when he was arrested during demonstrations at the Republican National
Convention in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Four years later, after a national
campaign, www.friendsofcamilo.org, he was acquitted of all charges.
