Today our Community Organizer, Kenyatta Thompson, had the opportunity to speak to students at Capital Community College (CCC). She and our new Apprentice Organizer, Dajuan Wiggins, spoke on how our team fuses Community Organizing and Harm Reduction to build the leadership of community members. They opened their presentation with the Incarcerated Communities Exercise -- explaining how whole communities are impacted by incarceration-- followed by a conversation about the many ways in which the criminal justice system affects other systems. They closed with a lively discussion on how to organize our communities and disorganize our opposition.
We thank Capital Community College for this amazing opportunity to connect with our community's future leaders and organizers, and we look forward to future meetings with the Social Justice Club and Black Student Union!
