Black Lives Matter Online Event

Online
10:00am – 11:30am
Free

We have arranged an online talk with activist Beverly Smith, whose then 27-year-old son, Alonzo Smith was killed by the police 15 years ago. He was the father of three young children. Kristina Roth from Amnesty International USA will join the conversation to offer her expertise on the incidence of police violence in the USA and to tell us more about what activists are doing to stop it. We invite you to join us to discuss the fight against racism, and for police accountability and think about what we all can do!

This event will be livestreamed on YouTube and Facebook. It will be held in English without interpretation into Japanese. Please post your questions to the guest speakers in the comments section.
