Racism in the War on Drugs [ONLINE]
September 16 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
It’s about time we connect the dots of all systemic oppression beginning with the Drug War.
“This is not just any webinar, this is one that will educate you on connecting the dots and draw a map for you to visualize how systemic oppression is all connected from how the drug war infiltrates one’s life. It starts off by acting like the laws in place are meant to help you, by offering shelters, child protection, hospitals with skeleton staffs who don’t want to get near people who use, then as they unfold and you read the small print you begin to realize the laws are really like covid 19, it begins as a small cough, then possibly the flu, then death.” – Dinah Ortiz
“For far too long, we have played the part of being humble and trying to love a country that has shown little to no love for people of color. We will explore what this means and how it looks from the perspective of directly impacted individuals. We will hear their shared hurt and pain on Racism and the Drug War.” – Robert Suarez
