Online Protest A 7-Day Nonviolent Protest @ The King Center
Jun 2 @ 7:00 pm – Jun 8 @ 9:00 pm

The ongoing protests in major cities are not accessible to all who share our outrage and desire for change. People with high risk COVID-19 factors, or those quarantining to protect loved ones, or those simply far away from major cities, to name just a few, have been unable to lend their voices.

We wanted to organize the #OnlineProtest to give everybody, everywhere a daily tangible way to contribute in the fight against systemic racism that plagues this nation.
Every day, #OnlineProtest will feature new speakers and announce a new specific initiative to rally behind, so that George Floyd’s life does not become just another statistic.

We are asking participants to line up along North Highland, on either side of the road, anywhere between E. Rock Springs and Boulevard and voice their support for Black Lives with signs, chants and some noise!

This is an alternative to a march, which can be challenging for families with children and those who wish to remain socially-distant during the Covid19 pandemic.

Please:
– Stay on the sidewalks or the verge (the area of grass between the sidewalk and the road) so that you do not block either car traffic or pedestrian traffic.
– Wear a Mask
– Stand 6 feet apart
– Make and bring a sign to convey your message to passers-by
– Bring sidewalk chalk and write your messages on the sidewalk
– Clean up after yourselves

Other considerations:
– Wear sunscreen and a hat!
– Bring water
– Post pictures and video to social media

Actions after the “Stand In”
– Talk with your kids about the event
– Read books about systemic racism
– Make a donation to a justice organization
– Communicate your concerns with your elected representatives
– VOTE !!!

In the coming days we hope to provide more ideas and links for you to explore an embrace.

Race Man–Julian Bond’s Legacy of Intersectional Activism @ Charis Books and More/Charis Circle
Jun 9 @ 7:30 pm – Jun 9 @ 9:00 pm

Charis is honored to present a conversation celebrating the intersectional activism and advocacy of Julian Bond on the occasion of the publication of Race Man: Selected Works, 1960-2015. Editor, Michael Long, and Pam Horowitz, Bond’s widow and decades-long collaborator for justice, will discus aspects of Julian Bond’s writing and work with a special focus on his lesser known passion for building bridges between the Black freedom movement and the U.S. movements for LGBTQ and women’s rights.

Julian Bond was a leader in the Civil Rights Movement, politician, professor and writer. In 1960, while attending Morehouse College in Atlanta, Bond was a founding member of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, leading student protests against segregation. A founder of the Southern Poverty Law Center, he served as its president in the 1970s while sitting in the Georgia House of Representatives. In 1968, Bond led a challenge delegation from Georgia to the Democratic National Congress, where he became the first African American and the youngest person to ever be nominated for Vice President of the United States, though he was ineligible due to his young age. In 1975, after ten years in the Georgia House, he served six terms in the Georgia senate, after which he taught at numerous colleges including Drexel and Harvard. In 1998, Bond was elected Board Chairman of the NAACP and, after his term, remained active as Chairman Emeritus for eleven years. He is the author of A Time To Speak, A Time To Act, a collection of his essays, as well as Black Candidates: Southern Campaign Experiences. His writing has appeared in many magazines and newspapers. He remained President Emeritus of the Southern Poverty Law Center until his death in 2015.

Georgia People’s Health Forum @ Georgia
Jun 10 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

**RSVP for this free event here: bit.ly/GAPeoplesForum**

COVID-19 is affecting all Georgians, especially Black, Brown and Indigenous folks, who are dying from COVID-19 at higher rates than their White neighbors. The President and other elected officials have falsely blamed this illness on people of Asian descent, fueling assaults against Asian Americans. At the same time Black folks are targets of ongoing violence by white supremacist police and vigilantes. Both are symptoms of America’s racism, and we can’t solve one crisis without addressing the other.

Racism is a health crisis. It kills mamas as they give birth, robs immigrants of health coverage, forces folks to work low wage jobs with no paid leave, and countless other acts of oppression. We need elected officials to step up and speak out for our communities.

At this event, community members will share their personal experience with important health issues and tell elected officials how they should meet community health needs during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.

With the state legislature planning to return to work on June 11th, we are making our demands NOW. We need our lawmakers to pass legislation that will directly impact the health of Georgians and strengthen our communities in the face of this pandemic.

We need:
1) Healthcare for new moms (House Bill 1114)
2) Hospital care for poor folks (Senate Bill 395)
3) Time to care for ailing loved ones (Senate Bill 408)
4) Our medicine when we need it (Senate Bill 391)
5) Action to stop police brutality*

*Although there currently is no live bill that addresses police brutality, we plan to voice this need to legislators and to ask how they plan to address this problem.

Please RSVP here: bit.ly/GAPeoplesForum

The Unapologetic Guide to Black Mental Health @ Charis Books and More/Charis Circle
Jun 10 @ 7:30 pm – Jun 10 @ 9:00 pm

Join Charis in welcoming author Dr. Rheeda Walker in conversation with Spelman professor Dr. M. Denise Lovett in celebration of The Unapologetic Guide to Black Mental Health: Navigate an Unequal System, Learn Tools for Emotional Wellness, and Get the Help You Deserve. The book is an unapologetic exploration of the Black mental health crisis–and a comprehensive road map to getting the care you deserve in an unequal system, which is even more important now during the COVID-19 crisis.

We can’t deny it any longer: there is a Black mental health crisis in our world today. Black people die at disproportionately high rates due to chronic illness, suffer from poverty, under-education, and the effects of racism. This book is an exploration of Black mental health in today’s world, the forces that have undermined mental health progress for African Americans, and what needs to happen for African Americans to heal psychological distress, find community, and undo years of stigma and marginalization in order to access effective mental health care.

In The Unapologetic Guide to Black Mental Health, psychologist and African American mental health expert Rheeda Walker offers important information on the mental health crisis in the Black community, how to combat stigma, spot potential mental illness, how to practice emotional wellness, and how to get the best care possible in system steeped in racial bias.

This event takes place on crowdcast, Charis’ virtual event platform. https://www.crowdcast.io/e/the-unapologetic-guide The event is free and open to all people, especially to those who have no income or low income right now, but we encourage and appreciate a solidarity donation in support of the work of Charis Circle, our programming non-profit.

Hashtag Activism: Moya Bailey and Sarah J. Jackson @ Charis Books and More/Charis Circle
Jun 11 @ 7:30 pm – Jun 11 @ 9:00 pm

The power of hashtag activism became clear in 2011, when #IranElection served as an organizing tool for Iranians protesting a disputed election and offered a global audience a front-row seat to a nascent revolution. Since then, activists have used a variety of hashtags, including #JusticeForTrayvon, #BlackLivesMatter, #YesAllWomen, and #MeToo to advocate, mobilize, and communicate.

Join co-authors, Sarah Jackson and Moya Bailey for a virtual conversation exploring how and why Twitter has become an important platform for historically disenfranchised populations, including Black Americans, women, and transgender people, and how marginalized groups, long excluded from elite media spaces, have used Twitter hashtags to advance counternarratives, preempt political spin, and build diverse networks of dissent.

Sarah J. Jackson is a Presidential Associate Professor at the University of Pennsylvania’s Anneburg School for Communication. A scholar of the public sphere, Dr. Jackson studies how media, journalism, and technology are used by and represent marginalized publics, with a focus on communication by and about Black and feminist activists. Her first book, Black Celebrity, Racial Politics, and the Press (Routledge 2014), examines the relationship between Black celebrity activism, journalism, and American politics. Her co-authored second book, #Hashtag Activism: Networks of Race and Gender Justice (MIT Press 2020), focuses on the use of Twitter in contemporary social movements.

Moya Bailey is an Assistant Professor of Cultures, Societies, and Global Studies and Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Northeastern University. Dr. Bailey is a scholar of critical race, feminist, and disability studies. Her work focuses on marginalized groups’ use of digital media to promote social justice as acts of self-affirmation and health promotion. She is interested in how race, gender, and sexuality are represented in media and medicine. She currently curates the #transformDH Tumblr initiative in Digital Humanities. She is also the digital alchemist for the Octavia E. Butler Legacy Network. She is responsible for bringing the concept of “Misogynoir” to mainstream discourse. #Hashtag Activism: Networks of Race and Gender Justice is her first book.

How Far Yet to Go? The Status of Women in Georgia 1970 and Today @ Zoom Webinar
Jun 18 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

This event is FREE.

Join us for the release of our new report, How Far Yet to Go? The Status of Women in Georgia 1970 and Today. Hear from local advocates, researchers, and organizers on the opportunities women have in 2020 to advance a pro-woman agenda.

Women in Georgia have long been active in advocating for social and political change. Despite these efforts and important accomplishments, the economic and political status of women – especially for women of color and low-income women – rank significantly behind other states. In fact, the COVID crisis has further illuminated the structural barriers women face. And yet, we are also seeing powerful resiliency and commitment among women across the state to protect the health and safety of all of our communities.

In 2018, we saw a record number of women vote and be elected into office. Yet soon after, we witnessed the Georgia state legislature launch one of the most egregious attacks on women’s healthcare. Now, in 2020, we have an unprecedented opportunity to change the political landscape and exert the kind of leadership that is needed to ensure our rights are protected and expanded.

Join us for this free lunchtime virtual event. RSVP to reserve your spot.

Confirmed speakers include:

Dr. Deirdre Oakley and Ifeanyi Ukpabi, Georgia State University and author of, How Far Yet to Go Now? The Status of Women in Georgia 1970 and Today.
Dr. Subasri Narasimhan and Dr. Dabney Evans, Center for Reproductive Health Research in the Southeast
Amber Mack, Policy Director with Healthy Babies, Healthy Mothers

Parenting for Liberation: A Guide for Raising Black Children @ Charis Books and More/Charis Circle
Jun 19 @ 7:30 pm – Jun 19 @ 9:00 pm

Charis welcomes Trina Greene Brown, author of Parenting for Liberation: A Guide for Raising Black Children and Denene Millner, author of My Brown Baby, for an essential conversation about how, in this time of perpetual state and interpersonal racial violence, Black families can imagine methods of parenting rooted in liberation rather than fear.

In 2016, activist and mother Trina Greene Brown created the virtual multimedia platform Parenting for Liberation to connect, inspire, and uplift Black parents. In her book, she pairs personal anecdotes with open-ended reflective prompts; together, they help readers dismantle harmful narratives about the Black family and imagine anti-oppressive parenting methods.

Parenting for Liberation: A Guide for Raising Black Children is rooted in an Afrofuturistic vision of connectivity and inspiration; the community created within these pages works to image a world that amplifies Black girl magic and Black boy joy, and everything in between.

This free event takes place live on crowdcast, Charis’s virtual event platform. https://www.crowdcast.io/e/parenting-for-liberation

This event is free and open to all people, especially to those who have no income or low income right now, but we encourage and appreciate a solidarity donation in support of the work of Charis Circle, our programming non-profit.
