Join Us on Thursday (Sept. 24), from 4-5:30pm, for a conversation with Andrea Ritchie, attorney, author, activist, and Researcher-in-Residence at the Barnard Center for Research on Women, about her book, Invisible No More: Police Violence Against Black Women and Women of Color.
Invisible No More examines issues of racial profiling, police violence, criminalization, and mass incarceration through the lens of women’s experiences. How do women, trans, and gender nonconforming people experience policing in ways that are similar to other members of communities of color, and how are their experiences unique? What do their experiences teach us about the shape and scope of police violence, and how do they expand our framing of the issues and our demands for justice? How do they call on us to radically reimagine our visions of safety and the means we devote to achieving it? A unique perspective on one of the central issues of our time, rooted in over two decades of experience on the front lines of movements to end police violence.
