#SayHerName: Police Violence at the Intersections of Oppression for Black Women
(3 Virtual Events)
The forces of structural racism and sexism are multifaceted and impact Black women in a multitude of ways across various sectors. However one through-line is the way in which Black women’s interactions with the state often turn violent and are sometimes fatal. Homelessness, gender policing or mental illness can lead to fatal interactions with police and other state actors. As part of #HerDreamDeferred: A Week on the Status of Black Women and Girls, the African American Policy Forum and the Transformative Justice Coalition held 3 virtual events on Tuesday, March 27 to explore these varied dynamics of oppression and violence.
