Color of Politics and Gender - Panel Discussion
Color of Change, in collaboration with Run&Shoot Filmworks, presents this panel that will focus on the current political climate. We will discuss how race and class have played a pervasive role in politics and policies since Reconstruction. Panelists will also review the importance of continued civic engagement by communities of color. This robust discussion will be inclusive of the #MeToo movement and the active participation of women of color. Intersectionality, the #MeToo movement and activism are themes to be covered.
