Event description: 

Join us as NYC-based activists Meejin Richart and Lee Jimenez not only share their personal experiences organizing across communities, but also facilitate an interactive workshop on coalition building. Meejin is a queer Korean adoptee whose areas of expertise include police brutality and U.S. militarism. Lee, an Afro Latinx queer and gender non-conforming activist, has organized LGBTQ youth of color and public housing residents. Learn more about Meejin’s and Lee’s amazing work by clicking the “Discussion” tab of our Facebook event! All are welcome to attend, as we aim to create multi-racial, multi-issue coalitions for the future. If you decide to share this space with us, please acknowledge that we will be centering the voices and experiences of queer and trans people of color (QTPOC). We look forward to building power with you. Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/1452886541430285/
