The brutal murder of George Floyd by US police has sparked a global wave of demonstrations calling for justice both for George Floyd and the millions affected by racism.
This online meeting will hear from anti-racist and civil rights figures from both sides of the Atlantic, including Rev Al Sharpton, who has played a leading role in the Floyd family’s fight for justice, on what we can do to build pressure.
As well as challenging racist policing, the meeting will also discuss how this movement can win gains on institutional racism in work, housing, education, and the massively disproportionate affect COVID-19 is having on Black communities.
