PAST EVENT: Lessons from Black Lives Matter
This was an interactive and experiential workshop by Raquel Willis on lessons from Black Lives Matter with a focus on digital organising, media, and engaging people with lived experience from marginalised communities. We explored how social media and the Internet have empowered people like never before and how to use digital tools to create radical change.
This was an absolute must for organisers, media gurus and campaigners from new and established organisations interested in revolutionising their approach to organising and engaging diverse communities.
Workshop Facilitator - Raquel Willis from the Black Lives Matter movement and the U.S. Transgender Law Centre. Raquel is a powerful black transgender activist and writer from the U.S. who was recognised this year as one of America's most influential African Americans on The Root 100, alongside Solange Knowles, Tamika D. Mallory and Patrisse Khan-Cullors. Raquel is coming from the U.S to share her knowledge and expertise on organising marginalised communities for transformative social change.
