Exploring the Intimate Link Between War & Racism

When: THURSDAY  January 18  7-9 PM

Where: ArtRage Gallery 505 Hawley Ave, Syracuse

PANELISTS:
Herve Comeau, community activist and attorney with Volunteer Lawyers Project
Rebecca Fuentes, community activist and Lead Organizer with Workers Center of CNY

System-wide violence in US communities is the twin of US aggressive wars abroad. MLK taught that the antiracist and the antiwar movements must go arm in arm. Three eloquent speakers—each on the frontlines of local movements for racial, immigrant and worker justice—will share their perspectives and reveal the relevance of MLK’s insight today.

Sponsored by the Beyond War and Militarism Committee a joint project of the CNY Solidarity Coalition and the Syracuse Peace Council

I will never apologize for being outspoken. It’s gotten me extremely far in life. Thank you to my friends on and off Facebook who helped my staff and I get to where we are now and everyone else who signed our petition. You’re aren’t unnoticed.

If you’ve been mistreated by your restaurant employer and need some support, reach out to the Restaurant Opportunities Center (www.rocunited.org) and they’ll be able to help you out as well.

Thank you once again! Have a nice day!
