From The Center for Constitutional Rights: Black Lives Matter, regardless of who’s in the White House

Recently, Bertha Justice Initiative fellow Stephanie Llanes had the opportunity to speak on a panel at the City College of New York, facilitated by the Black studies program. Moderated by Professor Linda Villarosa, Stephanie and Advancement Project attorney Angelo Pinto discussed the various ways that the Movement for Black Lives will exist and resist in the midst of the current administration. Among other things, Stephanie remarked on the importance centering Black voices, and calling out state-sanctioned and state-facilitated violence in all its forms.

Watch a video of the full panel here.
