Racially fueled hate 'crimes' have become more blatant and more frequent!

While members of impacted communities fightback, there is much that 
white and antiracism activists can and should do. Undoing racism is the 
responsibility of everyone who believes that racism is a violation 
against humanity.

/encuentro5 is hosting and inviting you to participate in an interactive 
social justice conversation about *racial oppression *and antiracism 
work.* on Wednesday, June 7, 2017 6:00pm – 8:00pm at 9A Hamilton Pl. 
(across from Part Street train station Green and Red lines and next to 
Orpheum Theater) Downtown Boston.*/

/The conversation will encourage discussion to better understand how 
root causes of white privilege and supremacy, its manifestations and 
underlying dynamics impacts antiracism work. The discussion will assist 
in the building and strengthening of unity and solidarity with local 
antiracist and social justice movements./


/The conversation will be led by *Shay Stewart Bouley, the first African 
American woman to serve as Executive Director of Community Change, Inc*. 
CCI is an anti-racism organization that was established several decades 
ago in Boston that educates and organizes for racial equity and justice 
with an emphasis on holding white people accountable  for their actions 
and commitment to dismantle racism beginning with their reflections, 
anti-racism education and working in solidarity with antiracist social 
justice and social change activists and movements./
