This Netroots Nation panel will be moderated by Andraéa LaVant and will feature Allie Cannington, Reyma McCoy McDeid, Dr. Angel Miles, and Ola Ojewumi.
The murder of George Floyd spearheaded a worldwide movement that has brought the issue of racism to the forefront of everyone’s minds–especially within spaces that are mission-driven to advocate for marginalized people that are, nevertheless, dominated by white people.
In this panel, Black disabled women and allies discuss working and collaborating with a community that has a long history of being racist and oppressive to racially marginalized people. Our intent is to invite critical thinking from people who work in progressive spaces that have histories of being racist but are similarly experiencing “awakenings.”
