The Rising Majority is hosting a People’s Tribunal and Congress called The Freedom Side: Rising Against White Supremacist Terror Toward a Just World.
The Freedom Side: The Peoples Tribunal and Congress 11AM PT / 1PM CT / 2PM ET on October 17th & 18th RSVP here
Tribunals are moments of truth telling and moral reckoning. The Rising Majority tribunal comes at a time of critical crisis in our country. Wildfires are burning out of control. The postal service is being defunded ahead of a critical presidential election. Black folks are stilldying at the hands of police. Indigenous water protectors are being arrested. Americans continue to lose their jobs and housing during a global pandemic. Immigrant detainees are being forced to have hysterectomies en masse. And a Supreme Court seat hangs in the balance.
In front of a panel of esteemed guest judges — including Angela Davis, Tom Goldtooth, Arundhati Roy, Raquel Willis, and Albert Woodfox —we will put the current system on trial, outlining all the ways in which it has harmed our communities. And then, together, we will envision the world we so desperately want and outline the steps we can take to create it. We invite you to bring your stories, your families, and your biggest, boldest visions for a just world.
