Talking Anti-Blackness, Transphobia, and Immigrant Rights with Houston Activists

Talking Anti-Blackness, Transphobia, and Immigrant Rights with Houston Activists

This past spring, we shared a blog highlighting a roundtable we organized as part of Cohort 4’s domestic exchange. This roundtable featured activists from Houston who are leading powerful and transformative work in Black and Brown communities in Texas. So many learnings from that discussion, including powerful ideas for a path forward for our communities, continue to stay with us and we encourage you to watch some brief highlights below. We also invite you to watch the entire video available in below in English or via this like in Spanish.
