Facing Race

The Facing Race conference, convened by Race Forward this November in Atlanta, brought together some of the most noteworthy names in progressive organizing just days after the 2016 election.
In this episode, Laura speaks with Tarso Luís Ramos, executive director of Political Research Associates about the ominous emergence of the far Right across the world; Kim Diehl of the National Employment Law Project, on strategy for progressive movements; Cara Shufelt and Jessica Campbell, of the Rural Organizing Project, on supporting rural mobilizations like theirs, which has been fighting Oregon’s Patriot militia movement for years, and Esha Pandit, from the Center for Advancing Innovative Policy, on the lessons for organizers that can be drawn from this year’s victories in Texas. To watch the excerpt with Judith LeBlanc, of the Native Organizers Alliance,  from the conference go here.
