Bridging the Americas: Black Lives Matter Everywhere

Bridging the Americas: Black Lives Matter Everywhere

In April 2014, a courageous Afro-Colombian community took a stand against violence that had controlled their lives for 15+ years, transforming their neighborhood into a peace zone. That same year, the Movement for Black Lives ignited in the United States, vividly drawing national attention to an epidemic of state violence against Black communities. This November, join critical conversations with Black community leaders from Colombia and the U.S. demanding respect for their lives, lands, and rights.
