Antiracism HUB

What do we do in the face of systemic racism?  What do we do as people of color oppressed by these systems?  What do we do as white folk who are privileged by these same systems?  Many of us are asking questions, searching for answers, and taking action where we see a path.    This Antiracism HUB is for those doing this work so we can share, learn, and act in each other's company. Join us if this is your calling, too. We aspire to be people of all colors, all faiths and all non-faiths.

"13th" Movie Showing, Oct. 13 in Seattle Last Updated on 2017-09-20 15:02:10 What: Movie showing: "13th" Where: Jubilee Hall, Our Lady of the Lake Catholic Church, 8900 35th Ave. N.E., Seattle When: Friday, Oct. 13, 2017, 7:00 p.m. Doors open at 6:30 p.m 13th (2016, 100 min.) The 13th Amendment to the U. S. Constitution abolished slavery, but it also included a provision many people don’t know about and that is what this documentary brings to view. “Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist.” That exception justifies the use of forced labor as long as the laborer is a convict. This documentary makes the case that inclusion of this loophole is only one of the justifications for continuing domination of people of color. The 13th Amendment was ratified in 1865 and director Ava DuVernay supports her thesis through the use... More »
