Trayvon Martin: The IN-justice System, Racism & Resistance

Across the country, tens of thousands of people have hit the streets after George Zimmerman was acquitted in the murder of Trayvon Martin. The enraging, tragic case of Trayvon Martin, like Emmett Till and so many others, has reaffirmed how racism is still at the heart of American society. We live with a system of “justice” that lets racist killers go free while warehousing millions of people of color into a "New Jim Crow" system of mass incarceration. To fight back, we must organize.

In Boston, there was a powerful rally and march in Dudley Square that brought together hundreds -- black, Latino, white, Muslim, Asian, LGBT, etc. How do we build upon this single protest? How do we build a strong, multiracial movement against racism & mass incarceration in our city?

Come to a panel discussion to figure out these and other questions.

Speakers TBA, but will include organizers in Boston as well as victims of racist injustice (and their families).
