Cross-Racial Friendships, Anti-Racism Organizing, and the Commitment to Keeping On Keeping On: A Conversation with Amihan Matias and Andrea Ayvazian

Tue, Apr 25, 2023, 7:00 – 8:30 PM EDT

Join us as two movement activists who have been working on racial justice issues for decades and been friends for 15 years talk about their work, their lives, and their friendship. Listen in while Moderator Mehlaqa Samdani asks Amihan and Andrea about what helps them keep going after decades of organizing and how their friendship has sustained them since they first connected in 2007. Expect these two activists and friends to be open, frank, and revealing as they discuss their struggles, triumphs, and joys over the years. There will be plenty of time for class participants to join in the conversation with questions, reflections, and strategies for going forward through good times and hard times.
