Omaha Table Talk: Black Lives Matter with College of Saint Mary

March 26 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

For so long the conversation about police brutality and the black community has centered on the abuse black men and boys experience by law enforcement. Following the high-profile arrest and death while in police custody of Sandra Bland in 2015, the #sayhername movement gained national attention as it sought to raise awareness for black female victims of police brutality and anti-black violence in the United States.


In partnership with College of Saint Mary, Inclusive Communities invites you to join a concentrated and intentional conversation about how black women and femmes are affected by anti-blackness and police brutality. What are the intersections of gender and race when it comes to the health care women receive? Why are Black women disproportionately sexually abused while in custody more than other women? On Tuesday March 26th, we take on these important questions and hear action steps all of us can take to be better allies and ensure Black Lives Matter.
