All eyes must remain on Louisville until justice is won. The Department of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies invites you to a virtual series that celebrates the work that Louisville’s local leaders are doing on behalf of our collective freedom. This series is an opportunity for the campus community to learn from their vision and find out how to join in the struggles for justice for Breonna Taylor and for the Black, brown, and poor residents of our city. Let’s dialogue about how we can work towards liberation through education, art, cross-border solidarity, law reform, and restorative justice.
