Jerry H. Labowitz Theatre for the Performing Arts
1 Washington Place
New York, NY , USA
Thursday, March 14, 6:00pm8:00pm

JOIN US for a discussion between Dani Balbi– the first Brazilian trans legislator in the Rio de Janeiro State Assembly and a staunch advocate for public education, LGBT rights, valorization of the periphery, and anti-racist efforts & Denise Ferreira da Silva, a visionary  scholar reshaping discussions on race, decoloniality, and global justice.

Dismantling Racial Capitalism creates space to develop and sharpen our understanding of racial capitalism, how it functions, its horrific consequences, and, most importantly, how we can challenge and dismantle it. The convening will bring together academics, organizers, policy-makers, students and change-makers for a deeply-rooted examination of how racial capitalism drives inequality, exploitation, and destruction, and how we can catalyze change.
