GSE 203

The recent years have been full of social protests and movements highlighting the way that people of color (#BlackLivesMatter) and women (#MeToo) continue to be targets of police violence, sexual harassment, and biased policies.  Often absent from the conversation are the experiences of women of color and their interactions with institutions such as the law, education, and the government.

This workshop will focus on the rise of the #SayHerName campaign--a movement focused on highlighting the targeting of girls and women of color by the police, the importance of intersectionality in the fight for social justice, and the actions that you can take to become part of a movement, such as self-care and every acts of resistance.

Facilitator: Charlotte Jacobs, Ph.D., Associate Director of the Penn Independent Teaching Residency Program and Executive Director of the Girls Justice League.
