AWARE-LA White anti-racist Saturday dialogues, https://www.awarela.org/saturday-dialogue 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 We also have one monthly “Online Sunday Dialogue” which was originally made available for folks who cannot make it to meetings in LA, or on Saturdays.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 https://actionnetwork.org/forms/aware-la-email-list/ to receive reminder emails about Saturday Dialogues.

Sep. 15 – Oct 15 Hispanic Heritage Month https://lacountylibrary.org/hispanic-heritage-month/
So called “National Hispanic Heritage Month” recognizes the culture, contributions, and heritage of Spanish-speaking peoples in the US. Now observed annually from September 15 to October 15, this national observance was first established by Public Law 90-498, approved September 17, 1968 by the 90th Congress. Public Law 90-468 authorized the president to proclaim National Hispanic Heritage Week each year. On August 17, 1988, the 100th Congress enacted Public Law 100-402, which extended the observance from a week to a month.
We note the absurdity of calling this “Hispanic Heritage” when the dates basically celebrate successful anti-colonial struggles against the Spanish empire and monarchical rule, establishing republics based on indigenous, African and Creole/criollo populations. The months of September and October cover a wide range of independence days for Central & South American countries. Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua all celebrate their independence on September 15. Mexico celebrates its independence on September 16, Chile on September 18, and Belize on September 21. El Día de la Raza (Indigenous Peoples Day) is observed on October 12.

How Could Less Red Tape Make Societies More Equal? Online, 5p PDT, A Zócalo/Pacific Council on International Policy Event, Moderated by Nikita Stewart, Assistant Metro Editor, NY Times. To merely open a bank account or secure a driver’s license, people around the world face one common barrier: paperwork. Americans, in fact, spend 11.4 billion hours a year on federal paperwork alone. Harvard legal scholar Cass R. Sunstein, former administrator of the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, has a name for this kind of drudgery: sludge. Sludge, he argues, doesn’t just cost time, money, and dignity—it does an immense amount of damage to society’s most vulnerable people. Bureaucratic red tape—“volokita” as it’s known in Russian—hinders everything from gaining access to food to securing healthcare. How could less paperwork help the least wealthy, least healthy, and least educated improve their station in life? Have any countries or institutions figured out what it would take to make this happen? Sunstein, author most recently of Sludge: What Stops Us from Getting Things Done and What to Do about It, visits Zócalo to talk about eliminating the piles of paperwork obscuring our path to a more equal world. https://www.zocalopublicsquare.org/event/could-less-red-tape-make-societies-more-equal/

Running Down the Walls 5K Since 1999, prisoners and supporters throughout North America have participated in the annual event known as Running Down the Walls (RDTW) often running or walking simultaneously in many cities and prisons at once. This is a 5k non-competitive run/jog/walk/roll in order to raise awareness and funds for the numerous political prisoners currently held in North American prisons. Due to the COVID pandemic, this will be carried out individually where and as you can to raise funds for the ABCF Warchest program created in November of 1994. Its purpose is to send monthly financial support to Political Prisoners and Prisoners of War (PP/POWs). The Warchest funds are divided and distributed through monthly stipends to political prisoners who otherwise receive little or no financial aid. Prisoners use this money to cover the basic necessities of everyday living. They’ve used funds to pay for stamps, shoes, clothes, as well as assisting their families with what little they can.
Every year we get runners who are unfamiliar with Political Prisoners, Prisoners of War, and the movements they came from. We read statements of solidarity from PP/POWs before each run begins because we want people to run with PP/POW’s issues on their minds. Let Us Know: •If you are able to run, please write to us and let us know that you can run and your thoughts on the run. •If you are not able to run, we still want your words, your thoughts, your knowledge and encouragement. •Please mail us your statements of solidarity as soon as you can.

Critical Race Theory 2 : Why We Need It & How It Impacts You; Committee for Racial Justice, 6:30-8p – zoom meeting open to all. Register: ttps://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZ0lfu-tqzgtHtQPDaCvIMfNOQ4XTqtoC31h Due to the Labor Day holiday weekend, the Committee For Racial Justice (CRJ) will hold its monthly workshop on the second Sunday of September. Why do we need Critical Race Theory (CRT)? How does it impact us? Why there is opposition? How can anti-racists talk to others about the need for CRT? What do those in opposition want to accomplish? We are living in an era where disinformation is battling with truth and history for control. New legislation in some states bans ideas and research designed to combat racism from classrooms and workplace training by labeling them “divisive” or “anti-American.” What is at the root of this conflict? What are its consequences?
To help us gain clarity and a direction forward, Dr. LaToya Baldwin Clark, an Assistant Professor of Law at UCLA School of Law, will be one of our resource people. She writes and teaches about education law, family law, property law, and race and discrimination. Her course on The Sociology of Law uses sociological texts to examine law “on the ground” as opposed to law “on the books.” The course places a particular emphasis on law as both a producer of and tool for dismantling societal stratification and inequality, including stratification and inequality based on race, class, gender and sexuality, and their intersections.
Previously, she was an Earl B. Dickerson Fellow and Lecturer in Law at University of Chicago Law School. Baldwin Clark received her B.S. in Economics cum laude from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, and her M.A. from the University of Pennsylvania in Criminology. She then earned her Ph.D. from Stanford University in Sociology and her J.D. from Stanford Law School. While at Stanford, Baldwin Clark was a Diversifying Academia, Recruiting Excellence Fellow.
If you are not on our email list, check the Committee For Racial Justice Facebook page closer to Sept. 12th for updates on further resource people and come to see why Critical Race Theory is important, to learn what is at stake, and to take part in the discussion. For more information, call Joanne at 310-422-5431.

Arrest Bush Now! Protest George W. Bush Speaking In LA, 6p, Saban Theatre, 8440 Wilshire Blvd, Beverly Hills, CA 90211. War Criminal and former President George W Bush is scheduled to speak in Los Angeles on the 19th of September, 2021 as part of the Distinguished Speaker Series of Southern California. His presence in Los Angeles is unwelcome and his characterisation as “distinguished” is laughable. As community organizers in the ANSWER coalition, we demand that his heinous legacy be recognized as criminal. George W Bush must be arrested and held accountable for his crimes. The catastrophic invasion and occupation of Afghanistan, which has lasted nearly 20 years, has killed at least 250,000 Afghan people, 71,000 of them being civilians. The losses incurred by this illegal war of aggression are directly attributable to the warmongering of the Bush administration. https://www.facebook.com/events/828171077888836 https://www.facebook.com/answerla/
