Uniting Racial Justice and Migrant Justice: Opal Tometi
In a time where unconstitutional and violent orders like the #MuslimBan are the daily occurrence, it’s important to lift up the people and organizations who have continuously been on the frontlines of this work. In this rerun special for Black History Month, we revisit Laura’s interview with Opal Tometi, a Black feminist writer, communications strategist, cultural organizer, and co-founder of the #BlackLivesMatter Network. She is also executive director of the US’ leading Black organization for immigrant rights, the Black Alliance for Just Immigration. Plus, a look back at our BLM coverage in Ferguson and Balitmore. And an F-Word from Laura on taking a breath in the midst of panic, to recollect, and then, organize.
