Catalyst hosts a number of educations events. Below you will find videos of various panels we’ve held over the years.
Black Liberation Across Geographies
“Black Liberation across Geographies” was our second Open Session panel from the 2018 Anne Braden Program. We heard from Ash-Lee Woodard Henderson, Co-Executive Director of Highlander Center, Pierre Labossiere, co-founder of Haiti Action Committee, and Kamau Walton, Communications Associate at the Transgender, Gender-variant & Intersex Justice Project (TGIJP). They had a dynamic conversation about the many forms and strategies of the Black freedom struggle.
Colonization and Resistance Panel
The Colonization and Resistance Panel featured three visionary community leaders spoke about the ongoing colonization of their homelands, and the politics and strategies of indigenous resistance. It was also part of the 2018 Anne Braden Program. The speakers were Alicia Rodríguez, a former political prisoner who has been part of the Puerto Rican independence movement for the last 40 years, Corrina Gould, Ohlone leader currently leading the fight to save the West Berkeley Shellmound and return sacred land to native stewardship, and Lara Kiswani, Director of the Arab Resource and Organizing Center.
