WE WHO BELIEVE IN FREEDOM CANNOT REST:
Organizing for Racial Equity
JULY 24 - AUGUST 2 | NEW ORLEANS, LA
Junebug Productions is proud to be partnering with the Urban Bush Women Summer Leadership Institute for the 7th year.
Are YOU outraged, hurt, indignant, moved to action by the mass incarcerations, violent policing and murder of Black people and People of Color in the U.S.?
We at Junebug Productions and Urban Bush Women are too, and we have planned our 2015 Summer Leadership Institute around our hunger for equity , with Michelle Alexander's thought-provoking bestseller, The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness.
Are YOU a professional dancer, someone who loves to move, someone who is new to movement, an artist, a culture bearer, a community organizer - or a bit of all of these?
JOIN Urban Bush Women, Junebug Productions and a broad cross-section of participants from around the country for a life-changing experience of dance and dialogue around the question that is being asked all across this country and the world - How do we institutionalize the notion that Black Lives Matter?
Urban Bush Women invites you to participate in this unique 10-day Summer Leadership Institute, July 24 - August 2, 2015 in New Orleans, LA!
Study with Urban Bush Women and powerful partners, Junebug Productions and The People's Institute for Survival and Beyond , in addition to dozens of experienced artists and organizers from around the country who make up the SLI faculty!
