Virtual Program | Women + Power: PEOPLE POWER


From Suffrage to Black Lives Matter to the fight for Indigenous sovereignty, women of color have been at the heart and forefront of social justice movements for generations.

The final installment of Brooklyn Historical Society and the Ms. Foundation for Women’s series turns its gaze to the struggles of today, the leading roles that women of color continue to play, and the search for the solidarity that can put systemic oppression on the ropes. Join the Ms. Foundation for Women and Brooklyn Historical Society for a panel featuring Enei Begaye, executive director of Native Movement; Kandace Montgomery, executive director of Black Visions Collective; and Toni-Michelle Williams, executive director of Solutions Not Punishments Collaborative. Moderated by activist, writer, and Director of Communications for the Ms. Foundation Raquel Willis.

This program is presented as part of the series Women + Power: 100 Years After the 19th Amendment, which looks at the relationship between gender, power, and the ongoing work toward equality in the century since a landmark movement.
