Tuesday marks a grim anniversary: the murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis police Officer Derek Chauvin, which ignited a wave of protest throughout the country and world.
On Monday, “Chicago Tonight: Black Voices” host and “Chicago Tonight” co-host Brandis Friedman moderated a community conversation on the racial justice movement and were it stands today.
Friedman was joined by Berto Aguayo, director and co-founder of Increase the Peace; Xavier Ramey, CEO of Justice Informed; Arewa Justice Winters of Justice For Families; Grace Pai, director of organizing at Asian Americans Advancing Justice; and Jazmine Salas, co-chair of the Chicago Alliance Against Racial and Political Repression.
During the conversation, guests reflected on the past year, discussing progress, setbacks and the path forward.
Our “Chicago Tonight: Latino Voices” community conversation is set for Monday, June 28 at 8 p.m. Visit wttw.com/events to RSVP.
