AWARE-LA White anti-racist Saturday dialogues, Saturday Dialogue is a gathering for white anti-racists who want to discuss issues of identity, community, privilege and racism in our lives with the intention to strengthen our practice as anti-racists in alliances, relationships, and interactions with people of color.

     Regular, recurring dialogues throughout the year focus on the intersections of multiple identities, including Race and Class, Sexuality and Race, and Gender and Race. Other workshops focus on relationships, Radical White Identity and Community, and issues such as police and the prison industrial complex, immigration, and gentrification.

     We currently have four monthly Saturday Dialogues, which used to meet in various places throughout LA County, and are temporarily meeting online through Zoom. We also have one monthly “Online Sunday Dialogue” which was originally made available for folks who cannot make it to meetings in LA, or on Saturdays. Sign up here to receive reminder emails about Saturday Dialogues. We strongly encourage you to attend a Saturday Dialogue Orientation before attending a Saturday Dialogue. See below for more info.

     You must register for each space each time you want to attend, as all of the zoom links are personalized and different for each person/gathering.

SATURDAY DIALOGUE ORIENTATION: 2nd & 4th Wednesdays, 6-7p via: Zoom, register here: We strongly encourage you to attend a Saturday Dialogue Orientation before you attend a Saturday Dialogue. Please join us! In this orientation, we’ll talk about the purpose of Saturday Dialogues and why AWARE-LA organizes as a white anti-racist community. We’ll go over what a typical Saturday Dialogue agenda looks like, and talk about the different types of content that we do throughout the year. We’ll also tell you about the organizational structure of AWARE-LA, and then close out our time together with an opportunity for newcomers to ask questions of our facilitation team.

WHAT ARE TODAY’S L.A. WOMEN FIGHTING FOR? 6p via zoom, Zocalo Public Square • Arizona State University • Smithsonian: 3rd and final segment in the When Women Vote: A Zócalo/Natural History Museum Event Series. Women have made LA one of the nation’s most progressive cities, fighting for their own rights as well as those of children, laborers, immigrants, and other underrepresented groups since well before they gained the right to vote over 100 years ago. The city, which has the lowest gender pay gap of any US metropolis, has been a leader in creating policies designed to create wealth for working-class women in particular. But women in LA—particularly lower-income and Black and brown women—still face a number of challenges, including health disparities, housing struggles, and human trafficking. What battles are the women of LA fighting today, and what are the plans to win them? CA State Sen. Maria Elena Durazo, artist and Social and Public Art Resource Center co-founder Judy Baca, Social Venture Partners LA executive director Christine Margiotta, and civil rights activist and lawyer Connie Rice, visit Zócalo to discuss what all the women of LA need to truly thrive. (Note: despite an illustration with a young Black woman in the streets taken by a young Latina photographer, they don’t seem to have invited “today’s” low income young Black and Brown women to speak for themselves.)

      In the midst of a deadly pandemic, the most presidential election votes were cast in US history. Before and after Election Day, the Trump campaign filed more than 20 lawsuits in state and federal court to change and block election rules, stop the counting, and challenge the results. Where do the challenges stand? Are reforms to how we vote in the works? How will mail-in voting and early in-person voting affect future elections? What’s in store for the Electoral College? What role should lawyers, law students, bar associations, and law schools play in protecting the right to vote and ensuring all votes are counted?

Panel: Erwin Chemerinsky, Dean and Jesse H. Choper Distinguished Professor of Law, University of California, Berkeley School of Law; Richard L. Hasen, CNN Election Law Analyst & Chancellor’s Professor of Law and Political Science, University of California, Irvine School of Law; moderated by Stephen Rohde, former President of the BHBA, a specialist in constitutional law, and author of American Words of Freedom.

WHAT WOULD SOCIETY LOOK LIKE WITHOUT POLICE? The World We Want: A Zócalo/University of Toronto Event Series, 1p PST, free. Moderated by Jamiles Lartey, Staff Writer, The Marshall Project. All over the world, law enforcement violence and corruption have reignited anti-racism movements that seek the reform and defunding of police—or even their outright abolition. Advocates of defunding the police say it would open up possibilities for addressing social challenges, from improving mental health and developing more sustainable neighborhoods and economies, to repairing the damage from centuries of discrimination and state violence. How would such a transfer of resources play out, especially in communities with a highly visible police presence? Who would replace police in their core work of emergency response, violence prevention, and crime investigation? What would it mean for a 21st-century society to dismantle, or even eliminate, its policing?

University of Toronto Faculty of Social Work Dean Dexter Voisin, Harvard University professor of criminal justice Sandra Susan Smith, and Rachel Harmon, director of the Center for Criminal Justice at University of Virginia Law, visit Zócalo to explore what our communities and nations would look like without traditional cops.
