NYC Beyond The Moment Teach-In #FreedomCities

btm april

Fifty years ago Dr. King called for people to confront “the fierce urgency of now” in his important “Beyond Vietnam” speech– he asserted that this country needed to “undergo a radical revolution of values.”

Join us on April 4th for a conversation and teach-in as we go beyond moments of outrage, beyond narrow concepts of sanctuary, and address barriers between communities with so much at stake and imagine visionary #FreedomCities.

Tuesday, April 4th from 6:00-9:00PM 
25 W 18th Street, 5th Floor
This event is free and open to the public, but please RSVP HERE

We don’t deny our differences, we embrace them and build a movement bold, broad, and big enough to include our many realities. Resistance includes taking to the streets, and building a movement truly rooted in solidarity must include taking the time to deepen our understandings of how we got here and what we’re up against.
